Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0989112616, Paperback)WARNING!!! DO NOT OPEN THIS BOOK UNLESS YOU WANT YOUR PERSPECTIVE OF LIFE FOREVER CHANGED. Mr. Moody invites you to walk a mile in his shoes. Experience a compelling memoir from the safety of your homes, a firsthand perspective and level of transparency truly unique. The bastard dark child of a black father and white mother, he grew up in what was called "The Life." His role models and mentors were hustlers, and killers. These were not strangers; these gangsters were his family. Crystal (mother) started taking him on drug runs when he was seven years old and was there when he was handed his first pistol. By the time he turned eight, he was sexually molested, physically and emotionally abused, and totally confused as to what a normal childhood consisted of. At nine, he was declared an abandoned child and was learning how to fend for himself on the streets of DC. He was unwanted, abandoned, illiterate, and on track to be a first class killer. The crack cocaine epidemic had just begun and DC quickly became the "murder capital" of the nation. Still such abuse and afflictions to a child was unheard of. This is no longer the case; the bulling epidemic, teen pregnancy, violence, abandonment, and incomprehensible massacres occurring on all levels of academia says that the absurdity of what he grew up in is now becoming the norm. This formula equals future monsters, not leaders. This is unacceptable. Buckle-up, strap in, and prepare for an emotional, psychological, and spiritual boot camp. Parents and educators will be reinvigorated and armed with some new and accurate information of how we can help the younger generations to make the choice to become leaders and not monsters in spite of the overwhelming challenges they face currently in their neighborhoods, schools, and communities. Come get schooled. His story is going to touch your heart or change your life.
