The current trend of young adult and youth violence has an end in Youth themselves, speaking to the conditions, to one another.  A “young adult minister is able to administer the proper factualities of today’s youth encumbrances in an impacting way“.

Leaders, must gain the advantage to this problem by advancing knowledge and direction to “responsible” young people; not counting any one out, but acknowledging the status of each person interacted with, and proceeding forward.   In this latest account, above; A young woman from South Monroe and a young man from Winnsboro.

Two families, and sets of friends are impacted.  Is their a responsible “Voice” to speak to the needs of both?

What do you do, when every corner you turn, there is another incident of gun violence, played out in our communities.?

[ ] From Baton Rouge to Bastrop, Louisiana. In New Orleans and its suburbs. Youth and young people are dying in a hurry, and violently. Something must be done. As the Legislature meets, this session, some of them, should be thinking and planning on how to change this scenario. It would be, great if someone, really put an effective agenda together, towards ending the plague, which has enveloped the Black Community.

From the Apostolic view, it is the Devil, the diabolical, that comes to “steal, to kill and to destroy”!! Ultimately, the Change that is needed is in the power of the people. Their hands, minds and wills can make the difference. If we, do not now, speak up for Our Children & Grandchildren, no one else will. Let’s be clear about, what we desire. We desire, an end to the violence amongst ourselves most of all. Everyone in every community and neighborhood, should vow a vow of non-violence, forever. Period!!

Just because governments are constantly in a retaliative reactionary stance, it does not mean that the whole of society, has to follow suit and go along with it. Period.
