“WE DON’T NEED NO WATER, LET THE MOTHERFUCKER BURN! BURN MOTHERFUCKER! BURN!”

“WE DON’T NEED NO WATER, LET THE MOTHERFUCKER BURN! BURN MOTHERFUCKER! BURN!”
When I was a kid, my parents and elders would say, “Do as I say, and not as I do”. So if my mom said “smoking is bad for you”. While at the same time smoking a cigarette. It became a very confusing message.
The youth of today, “Don’t play Dat”. They tell their parents, “If you say don’t do something, then you don’t do it first”. They basically want adults to be the change they want to see. This is much harder to do.
Setting an example for young people to follow. This includes our public officials, police, teachers, and the community at large. So if you set a bad example. Then young people will learn bad habits.
So if we don’t blaze a path for our youth to follow. A path that will lead them to becoming, loving and productive human beings.
Then we cannot blame them for setting the path on fire, literally. Because they got lost along the way.
We cannot then blame them, for setting the whole forest on fire, in order to find their way out.
We cannot not blame them, when we know that ” It takes a whole village to raise a child”.
