Think. Think. Think before you do something you know is not a good choice. Most murders happen by people between the ages of 17-24, and 90% of them involve drugs and/or alcohol. A murder (or any crime for that matter) starts with one bad decision, that leads to another bad decision, that leads to a devastating act. Think about every thing you do, and ask yourself if you really want to take responsibility for what you are either doing, or about to do.
We’ve preached a sermon of self-love and self-esteem for so long, I think we’ve gone overboard. Don’t get me wrong — it’s a great message to send, and it’s absolutely necessary for a sane, productive person to bloom from your child bush. But it has to be used in tandem with lessons of restraint and humility. I don’t think there’s anyone under the delusion that Honey Boo Boo is going to grow up to be a tolerable, well-adjusted woman.
