You will never know where you are going if you don’t know where you’ve been. With so many destructive forces and global challenges facing the children of this society; our future and well-being depends upon our providing opportunities for the growth, development, awareness and guidance of our youth. We can no longer delay nor procrastinate in preparing and shaping these young minds into becoming a positive, powerful, and motivated force of leaders. One that would counteract the numerous negative influences in our culture and shed that much needed light thereby making a difference. Take up the torch of teaching. Invest in our future by being here for our children now. Once said in times past "My people are destroyed for the lack of knowledge…" Wisdom cries in the street "how long?" Survivors of the struggle try to justify the present pain. Was it all in vain? Do we verify the prophecy of yester years? "As we progress we regress?"
