About eleven-and-half years ago, or so...
God brought me to live within a fifteen mile radius of Yulan, NY.
I have observed several behavior traits of our environment/community; which contribute both negatively and positively to our youth, young adults and future leaders.
DRUGS, ALCOHOL, AND SEX ARE RAMPANT.
NEITHER OF THESE THINGS DEFINE A PERSON,
IF THIS IS ALL THAT IS AVAILABLE?
HOW DO WE EXPECT ANYTHING DIFFERENT THAN WHAT HAS BEEN?!
