My intial reaction was “wow, that’s harsh” but then almost as quickly I thought “but that puts the onus on them to make changes to their situation and not play the victim”. That basically is what Pastor Washington said was his motivation in telling the boys that very message. Many of them come from a victim-mentality background and The Gentlemen’s Society aims to help them realize, often for the first time, that they own the power to change their world.
But then I got to thinking …
everything is my fault …
EVERYTHING is my fault …
EVERYTHING is MY fault …
*whew chile* When I say that sucka hit me upside my head concerning the field I work in and my opinion there of, I would be understating the SMACK I really got. It’s ringing in my head like a gong. Thanks a lot!
This is defintiely something to chew on indeed. I own my power in so many other areas of my life, but in that particular area … not so much. I must do better and “use my gifts and talents to change my situation”
Everything is my fault.
What do ya’ll think? Chime in!
Until next time Glam Fam I wish you
Life, Liberty & The Pursuit of Nappyness,
