We cannot argue the statistics of crime. Chicago reported a 48% increase over last year. San Jose's homicides more than doubles during the same period and Los Angeles County reported 110 homicides so far this year compared to 85 homicides in 2015. Click Here
We need to talk about the reason for the growing crime, especially in our younger generation. Research reports it is linked to anxiety over drugs, permissive child-rearing, no faith or biblical belief systems, declining academic standards, vulnerable populations, or the inability to compete with global markets for instance the Japanese and how that relates to America.
So how did the crime problem get out of control? Is the answer "real time" crime data? Uniform Crime Report (UCR) data published by the FBI lags by nearly a year Click here.
Do we need more news? More counselors? More youth groups? More ADD/ADHD medications? More anxiety or anti-depressant medications? Stricter gun control? More Laws? Is the crisis because the hand of the government went into the business of creating culture and therefore contributed to the crisis?
Medically speaking, I am concerned about the 12.5 million or 4.7% of the American population who misuse narcotic prescription pain reliever drugs which includes non-medically supervised use. In the last year we have reports validating 828,000 people used heroin. Now we not only have out of control crime but its coupled with an opioid epidemic.
We must return to the "natural" "traditional" family in which there is a mother and father raising the children they have conceived. The family MUST be founded on love, loyalty and above all commitment. People have forgotten how to make "commitment" an unconditional belief of who they are down right down to the core of their fabric.
Soldiers are committed to the end of the battle. Doctors and Nurses will never give up or leave a patient until the end. Why is everybody giving up on marriage and the future of our society? Why the rejection? When did "commitment" get a DNA fatal mutation? Rejection in ANY form is a malignant cancer that has no cure and the pain cannot be treated. Rejection has deep consequences for everyone and is the root of every problem America is facing.
Parents you have 18 years to model love, loyalty and commitment. Teach your children "how" to choose a life of commitment. To own the honor of "Commitment" you must critically evaluate everyone and everything in every area of life BEFORE you commit.
Your marriage is your company or ministry. Don't you want to be the best, most stable, profitable, global successful entrepreneurial family on earth! Set those goals high and go after them together! Be a TEAM!
The family unit leaves no one behind! Commit to your marriage and commit to your children!
Step into the World!

I find it interesting to listen to the opinions on spirituality, politics, religion, or health from our teens, and young adults when I see them at events in our community.
