Guest Editorial : Until We Get it Right

I said it in 2008, in 2009 and I'm saying it again in 2010.  We must step up to the plate when comes to taking responsibility.

Men, you must stop creating babies and walking away from them.   If you care enough to lay down with a woman and have a child, then you must care enough to have a presence in that child's life. 

Teach your child to be a responsible citizen, to be respectful of others, and the world doesn't own them anything just because they were born.

Now women, we must stop blaming everyone else for what has gone wrong in our lives.  Remember the outcome of bad relationships is the direct result of bad choices we make.  Nobody caused our problems, so we must stop being angry at the world for our poor decisions.

 Yes we must take responsibility for what we don't have in our lives, in our homes, and in our communities.  Our ongoing message must be, "yes we must" work and earn a paycheck or create opportunities for ourselves in order to have the things we desire.

We must stop making our problems those of others, honestly, speaking, everyone has their own issues to deal with... after all we are all gifted with the same 24 hours each day, how you use yours is up to you ... remember, there are no short cuts in life.
