Below is a documentary about my former hometown, East St. Louis, Illinois. It is sad when you see the amount of corruption within the police force and the appointed politicians. Beyond that is the citizens who must get out and educate themselves so they can seriously help themselves and their children. Lack of education is a MAJOR PROBLEM also lack of direction or goals.
I have lived in this city, I've seen first hand the hopelessness that exists within it. I wrote my book to help those who are still living in quiet desperation. I wrote my book to help young people growing up to truly realize that they are valuable and they can have a positive future. I wrote my book to address many problems as well as the solutions to them so that we can fix them.
Watch this documentary and see if it doesn't open your eyes to what is really happening. THE PEOPLE HAVE TO HELP THEMSELVES. Education is IMPORTANT! I'm sure they prefer to not leave their lives in someone else's hands, therefore they must educate themselves. A lot of these people are being taken advantage of simply because they are uneducated. They must WAKE UP.
