I was blessed with the opportunity to go to the Dallas Cowboys/Chicago Bears game (wherein the Bears won 27-20) with my virtual little brother, Aaron Williams, and his wife and spent time with other friends in the Dallas area.
I was invited, able to sit on and participate in a panel discussion on alternatives to sending our youth and young adults to adult prisons, designed to kick off a Campaign for Youth Justice Project (http://forjmo.blogspot.com/) in the state of Missouri.
But... I've also had an "old friend" threaten me and attempt to extort me for $30,000 + dollars.
This life of mine is blessed...bitter sweet, but blessed.
2 Corinthians 4:7-9
7~But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. 8~We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; 9~persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.
