Please help our youth throughout the community. Kids are out of school and have lots of free time on their hands. I don't know where to begin. You could say that it starts w/the parents and or they should have been raised in Church, etc...
I was not raised in Church and my dad worked a lot. My mother was a stay at home mom for a little while and for some reason I was always afraid of disappointing her or getting in trouble. I'd like to say that it's one of reasons why I joined law enforcement, but I think I joined because I was fixated on Charlie's Angels and Columbo (One of the best detectives ever)... speaking of, he recently passed away. May he rest in peace.
But in any event, please keep an eye on the youth in your neighborhood. Offer them small jobs here and there, recommend stuff for them to do or someone that may hire them. Report their activities even if you think it doesn't concern you.
Have a great summer and smile even if you don't feel like it!
Jesus is always near.
