  • There are reasons why girls are having babies out of wedlock. Could it be the music that these young ladies are hearing? The images they see from mainstream media?
  • There are reasons why our young men think “it’s cool to fail.” Just as long as they have the freshest sneakers or the baddest chick on their arm. What breeds this type of self-esteem? Could it be the portrayal of masculinity? Lack of family structure?
