I know you remember her, or them, those ones who birthed and raised you, or birthed you, but gave you away to someone who could do a better job than them, etc. Whichever way you got here. Even if you're a test tube baby. You're here in this world. If you have children of your own now, then you are a witness to the craziness that has been going on with our young people. Ever feel like it's your fault? Ever feel like you have something to do with it, by not giving out jobs to youth despite their race or economic status, not educating them properly, not making them feel like if they had a dream, they could achieve it? Maybe not. However, somehow, we all play a part in how our children, the ones who will be running this world when we're gone, will govern this society.
Of course, you already know this. Even if we care to ignore it. But every time one of us ignores it, waiting for the next one to do their part, we are crippling the future. You might ask, "Do our part how?" Just by knowing that no matter what you do to raise your children in your eyes with proper steps and guidance, our children have minds of their own, and usually end up proving that with rebellion. Knowing this, have a kinder, gentler heart. Give all children a chance to make the world go round, no matter their race, creed, gender, etc. Because whether we like it or not, some of us have physically or mentally birthed the murderers, the thieves, the rapists, and some of us have birthed the great leaders of the world today. What's so strange is, if you take a look around you, you will see that every household, rich or poor has given us one or the other.
We are all still just one people trying to survive. None of us not really any better than the other.
