A Call to Action
This is a call to duty. I understand that a lot of men won't be willing to do this because of the size, scope, and difficulty inherent in the task. That's understandable. However, please understand I wouldn't call you to duty if you weren't absolutely needed.
We are in a turmoil when it comes to our families. We have a disproportionate amount of fatherless children in our community. It's hurting us. Studies have shown, single mother households are more likely to be in poverty. Children who come from poverty increases their chance of leading a life of crime. Criminals have a harder time receiving gainful employment, which in turn, keeps them in poverty. Can you see the vicious cycle? Government programs aren't helping, our women aren't able to end this cycle - it's up to us! We must step up and change this cycle. We are the cause of it, and only we can fix it.
Now, back to my call to action. We need to make this our priority and responsibility. We can no longer say these fatherless children are the problem of someone else. We simply do not have that luxury. They are a direct reflection on the health of our community. After all it takes a village to raise a child. We need to help raise these children. Volunteer, become a mentor. Start a non profit organization that creates mentorships for our fatherless children. Consider dating and marrying worthwhile single mothers.
