    I can’t tell you how much respect I have for those that mentor youth, when stuck in the same lower-income situation. Mr. Davis, I applaud you.

    That’s good he’s doing that for the kids in his neighborhood. He is right the streets will take your child no doubt. I am so happy my son keeps to himself and really just play his video games between my place and my moms place and in the summer he may go to the park around my place to play basketball. So, so far I haven’t had to really worry about anyhing on that level thank God. He’s a pretty good kid I must also thank God for that since he doesn’t have his father or a positive male figure in his life. I could really be going through a thing right now but I am really blessed on that level.
