Will “We the People” Return to Values that Created Resilient Americans?

A society without a moral foundation will fail. Agree or disagree? Let’s look at the facts. Has crime and violence become acceptable as city leaders ignore looting stores and smashing windows to get “free” merchandise? Why are so many Americans taking drugs, shooting each other, and becoming violent? Why are city leaders allowing drugs and illegals to pour over our southern border as 107,000 people die from Fentanyl? How do you feel about police being gunned down in record numbers by criminals?

Do you think politicians are wise, truthful, and have your family’s best interest at heart? Why are they failing to have consequences for criminal behavior? What changed our values from empowering our inner spirit into a drug culture where thousands of Americans can’t cope and live on our streets?

Politicians and city leaders say racism, guns, and corporate greed are the issues and never mention the family breakdown or the plight of abused or neglected children who are sex trafficked, joining gangs, killing, and committing suicide in record numbers.

Did we raise children who are now parents to worship money and forget to focus on family support and the importance of teaching the 3C’s, Courage, Character, and a self-protective Conscience?

In my home, three children experienced alcoholism, anger, violence, and divorce. At age fifteen, my mother and her boyfriend abandoned me in Mexico City, and I didn’t speak the language. It almost killed me! Where do you turn when you have no one who cares? I remember my grandmother saying, “If you have a problem, ask God for help.” That is what I did, and I survived with a mission to help strengthen families.

You don’t need a church to ask for God’s help! Anyone can turn to their inner power to discover help and solutions. Churches and Synagogues support families and talk about the power of love.

Here is one man, and I have met many drug addicts and homeless people
who found their solution to freedom.

Will we remain a free America? Where should we turn during trying times to find answers? Should we turn to politicians, government, and city leaders or seek a higher power (God) who offers hope with the ability to strengthen family support and make life worth living? You decide!

Stephanie Mann co-authored, Alternative to Fear: Guidelines to Safer Neighborhoods,” which helped launch the national “Neighborhood Watch” Program. Within 2 1/2 years, involved residents in her community (17,500 residents) decreased crime 48%, WITHOUT a local police department. Mann worked as a community leader, neighborhood organizer, county coordinator, state consultant and authored, “Safe Homes, Safe Neighborhoods: Stopping Crime Where You Live” (Nolo Press 1993) In 2010, while working in Richmond CA, with “Mother’s Against Senseless Killings,” Mann saw people too scared to be involved or report crimes. She wrote, “The Adopt-A-Block Guidebook,” with an easy-to-follow guide for existing groups and “My first steps to a safe neighborhood” for citizens. These booklets give individuals and groups the tools to reach out and bring people together to help each other. Stephanie started a homeless men’s support group while working with “The Mary Ann Wright Foundation” in Oakland CA. She recognized the need to support children at an early age and wrote, “Street Safe Kids: 10 Step Guide for Teens and Adults” (which has been used in after-school programs) to help youth grow strong from within to develop self-esteem and stay centered. Book available on The Safe Kids Now National website states, “Every child needs a healthy family and neighborhood to stay safe.” In partnership with the CARR Foundation, a binder, “Safe Neighborhoods: Access to a Healthy Community,” was created for city leaders to make neighborhoods safer for families and neighborhoods. Stephanie’s books strengthen families and can decrease the social isolation that fuels bullies, domestic violence, abuse, drugs, gangs, and other destructive behaviors.”
