How important he thinks education and extracurricular activities are to ensuring young kids don’t get involved in gangs and illegal activities?
Extracurricular activities are paramount for kids to stay focused and headed in the right direction. Sports were so pivotal in my life as a young person, and if I wasn’t doing sports at that age, I would have been involved in music. Any form of productive extracurricular activity is the safest bet to allow children to have a productive future and to be productive citizens. It may sound hokey, but education imbues kids with a level of self-confidence and self-worth where it becomes easier for them to understand the consequences of their wrongdoings.Understanding that he’s a poetry writer. What he might say to those younger kids who often shy away from poetry to encourage them to write?
When someone shies away from poetry, it can be like shying away from themselves. I have learned in 30+ years of writing that everybody has a poem inside of them, the sooner you learn to write it, the freer you are and ultimately….the stronger.Photo Credit: Vulkan
