Christian Youth

Christian Youth


Still in High School? How is it for you? For me, it was a once of a life-time unforgettable experience (91’-95’) that I can’t go back and relive again. What I’m trying to saying to the youth is live it to the fullest and use each experience-good or bad-as a preparation season/time for something “better”. I was picked on in junior high for my homework and it didn’t exist in high school. I thought it was going to be a rougher time in high school, like those movies I saw on t.v. It eventually became a better time (compared to Junior High: racial fights, got suspended, got spat on, etc…) than I expected.
