"I struggle on a daily basis to keep my kids balanced-to make the woods, parks, rivers, and streams, just as relevant as the Nintendo Wii or Spongebob Squarepants. It's tough, and it's easy to let them loaf around all day. But I have to do a better job.
I know one thing. The best things in life don't plug into an electric socket or use batteries."
Man oh man...its so nice to receive encouraging and warm emails from caring individuals from time to time . You would be surprised at how many times I get (usually from people who I haven't seen in a while) that I run into in person, "wow thats great what you do (hardly any expression) but do you get pay for it?" "thats nice you do that. I can't believe you go into Camden by yourself" or the best is "aren't you ever afraid the kids are going to jump you?" I just politely laugh and shake my head. I'm not trying to come off all high and mighty, but I think its too easy for people to judge, criticize and comment when on the outside looking in. Or better yet, when lacking the experience or exposure to have a full understanding of a situation while quickly drawing a conclusion or writing someone else (or others) off. Sure we all have done it before, but the next time you find yourself scoffing at a a group of young kids for example, think of the young aspiring boys at our club who are working their tails off to improve themselves - in life, sports and school. And that we really don't live in a world that is half as bad as the news (media) would lead us to believe. There are many good kids out there, but unfortunately we hear more stories of the bad kids than we do the good kids.
"I just wanted to write and let you know that I think it's people like you who put time and energy into teaching and building community among the youth of today who are making this world a better place for all of us! It is truly inspiring to look at the pictures and read the posts on your site. You obviously are putting your whole self into what you do and that is very admirable. Those boys are lucky to have you in their lives!"
