Letter: A losing game
The game that some people play where there are never any winners no matter how hard they try, the outcome to this game is always, all the time, imprisonment or death.
If there is anything to be said, but sadly positive, it brings families together. But that’s not how anyone wants to see someone no matter how long it’s been. Young men, for the sake of God, your families and those who care about you and yourself, please give this some thought, try communication, conversation, a better way to resolve your differences that could lead to a lasting life.
There is such a thing as growing old and dying gracefully and of natural causes, which gives you a chance to see your kids grow up and embrace your grandkids. But there has to be a change. Stop believing the gun in your hand is what makes you a man.
Words cannot express the heart-felt pain of those who have lost their loved one. But what you can do is change the game; and by doing that we all become winners.
Take the gun out of your hand and take a stand; that’s what makes you a man.
