My name is David Wardell Johnson, Jr. I am a writer, poetic activist and motivational speaker. I write poetry about many aspects of life however; I prefer poetry that focuses on uniting our families, The African American Families. Truth be told, my poetry is mainly directed at those responsible for “Saving Our Children,” African American adults. MEN primarily, since for the most part women have been stepping up and stepping in when Men run away or have been locked away from their responsibilities. My first book “If We Save Our Children…We Save America” is published and on the market.
The future facing our young people are bordering on bleak and deplorable. Adults not sharing the blunt of their responsibilities. Time is running out to save our current and future generations. We must come together and do it NOW, if our young people are to stand a chance at success and survival. If they are to ever be faced with anything other than teen births, drugs, prisons and death.
THEIR FUTURE. Those two words are monumental when it comes to our children. Giving them a chance at a successful future will not materialize if we continue to ignore their cries for HELP. It does “take a village to raise a child,” and that has never been truer than here and now.
It is truly a BLESSING that I find myself in the position I am today. Growing up I did not have the luxury of parental guidance or a family to fall back on. As a result, my life experiences have gone from horrible to great. Thanks to our Creator and concern from absolute strangers, I am therefore determined to carry on an extremely important mission. Unfortunately, I cannot do it alone. I need your help
My life experiences are what books and movies derive from. Right now, I am concerned with sharing it in poetic fashion and in person. It is my way of motivating those responsible into doing whatever necessary to strengthen our young people. The majority of our young people are good and with parental, community and academic supervision, they will become great.
If you are in a position to do so, I ask you to allow me to share my work, my story and my poetry with an audience you feel could benefit. If you have or have not heard about me I urge you to contact me. I would also like you to view my book on “Amazon.com” or “futureauthor.com” If you like what you read and decide to purchase a copy all monies are going to an organization my wife and I have set up to benefit children.
I know first hand what it is like educationally for our children. My wife taught in the Baltimore, Maryland School System for thirty plus years and we conversed daily. Some of the things teachers endure from students and parents are heart wrenchingly depressing. Support for the message I am conveying runs from classrooms, communities, church pews, State Capitols, City Halls and Capitol Hill.
When I hear about children being killed by pedophiles, drive by shootings or other children, I am sickened to my stomach. These things are not just happen in one or two States but throughout the United States. It is clear that many with the power to change things are more concerned about matters outside the United States. Iraq, Afghanistan and other countries we stand to benefit from financially.
Having said that, we best take matters into our own hands and make saving and educating our children, a top priority. Adults, we must lead by example and right now the examples we are setting borders on insanity. Insanity that is destroying our children’s future and our own. I am asking your help in winning this war of survival facing Our Children and All Children.
Thank you for your time and I anxiously await your response.
David W. Johnson, Jr., President
