My Brother's Keeper Initiative
Listen, then ask yourself, how can I help contribute to this program's success?
We must remember that as a family, community, nation, society, we are only as strong and successful as the weakest, poorest link. Unlike the reality tv shows that encourage competitors to put down, ostracize, abandon and kick off the island those who appear to be pulling down the team with their selfish irresponsibility or weak commitment, those in the real world group who have progressed have an obligation to lend a hand and help those who are failing to succeed.
Helping those who for whatever reason(s) find themselves at the bottom of a group could be done by teaching, by leading, by caring about them enough to help them dust off and sharpen their God given tools in order to succeed in meeting the challenges of life. We must remember that nobody succeeds without the help of others. The byproduct of helping even one person succeed eventually pays dividends to the one who helps.
I'm pledging here on my blog to offer whatever I can to help support President Barack Obama's My Brother's Keeper Initiative.
