Break the Cycle

"I wish we could just break the cycle." Those were my words to my Dad as we drove past low income housing in Norfolk, VA this weekend.

So how do we break the cycle of drugs, crime, and violence that seems to plague our cities and neighborhoods generation after generation?

Basically,  you have to do what you can with what you have. It's really not about telling others what they should do, but taking the time to ask them how you can help them.

You will learn so much if you just take time to listen. You have to want to know why people are hurting and you have to care.

We also have to start loving ourselves more. If you don't love yourself you can't effectively love and help others. 

It takes an unconditional type of love to be able to deal with individuals and get to the root cause of the issues that are being manifested in our lives.

Let God direct you, because with him anything is possible.  If you believe that he has placed a certain call on your life, he will confirm it. Surround yourself around individuals that support you and that are able to pray for and with you. 

Always remember that just because you may not visually see a person's wounds, it doesn't mean that they are not there.

    Much Love, Dad :)
