Relativity-poverty and ignorance breeds social injustice


I've never blogged before...but since I love to write, I figure...why not.

I know that I want to make an imprint in this world. So, every day I look for a need and try to fill it.

Today I watched teen boys playing basket ball at a school for high risk students. Most of these students have been to jail and will never be able to see the world outside of their own bleak perspective.

I started wondering...what if instead of trying to find programs that rehabilitate these kids ......we as a society got it right the first time around.

What if we cared about their progress from Kindergarten and through each grade. Would it be so hard to do?

What if parents got involved when their children were young and starting school. Maybe just one time a day have a meal with their little ones.

What if instead of harming our children with foul language and trying to be their best friends, we acted as parents, aunts and uncles...real adults...role models of respectfulness.

What if we did this...do you think that we'd see a difference in our youth? Would it make the necessary change?

Welcome to BlogLand! I am sure you will like it here. Blogging is good for the soul. Also, almost any issue can be discussed here.

I think that we are trying to get it right the first time. We make efforts to better education and opportunity through debate and actual reform.

Realisticly, Utopia cannot be obtained no matter how hard we try. Our society is too large. There are too many facets to it now. Family is still of great importance, although I agree with you and feel that it is under siege.

In families that are still living together, both parents are often working, leaving less time for social training for their children.

Close, extended families will certainly raise children with better citizenship and other values than single-parent homes will ever hope to do. Jeeze, I could go on all night about this...
