We have to do what we can to save our youth. There are so many out there who are lost and have no guidance or direction on where to go or how to get there. That's why when I see people stepping up to lead by example, I am all for it and have to give props where they are due.


There is a newly formed organization here in Southwest Louisiana called 1000 M.E.N (Motivate, Empower, Nurture) and the focus of this group is to try to empower our youth, especially our young men. While statistically most of our kids come from a single parent household. It's no excuse for them to embark into a life of crime or head down the wrong path.


So this Thursday June 9th, we are calling all men who have the time to come out and join in the meeting to discuss the youth and the impact that we can have on them if we come together. It all starts at 7 pm and will be held at New Faith Baptist Church located 4211 Opelousas Street in Lake Charles. There is no fee to attend, but we do ask that you bring your thinking cap and be prepared to discuss ideas and the direction of the organization.
