    School just started and so did the drama. Young people in the last 17 years I have seen things go from bad to worse. I know we are all different and some have more than others but this is what makes us Human. Why be jealous of each other for a piece of the dream?? People feel like they have to take what they want instead of actually earning it. Real people get sick and end up on SSI or some sort of assistance and others who abuse it but still again we are all human and make mistakes. No one is perfect and no the grass is not greener on the other side. If you want to follow your dreams you have to earn it and work hard at it no one is going to hand it to you. I went through an addiction lost my family now slowly getting them back. I have 3 teenagers my oldest can basically go to any school she wants my other two boys are also on the right track despite their childhood. If you put your mind to anything you can achieve it positive or negative honestly the choice is all yours but think about never seeing your loved one again…. No one ever said life is easy but I know in my heart that Jesus loves all of us unconditionally so no matter what you have done he will forgive you. Peace to allπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ

    See how well so called ” gun control ” works ?
    An armed society is a polite society.
    Staff at all schools should be armed.

    The only thing I would change from Monique’s comment would be that it hasn’t been 17 years since the wave of violence has swept America but rather since the 2008 presidential election.
