A dear friend brought my attention to this article. It is a great, real story. The topic is one dear to my heart. Young people now-a-days get the short end of the stick with both parents working, peer pressures to join gangs and social expectations to purchase expensive name brand products. However, these issues are NOT insurmountable ~ we just need perspective and choices. I send kudos to both Wilson and Bob for mending / closing the age, race and achievement gaps in one strong relationship. Keep up the wonderful work, your example is inspiring. Thank you.
