Solicit Corporate To Sponsor Floats For Low Income Kids at Elementary, Middle and High Schools

The unalienable right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness is only for those who are prepared. Education is the key and vehicle to that future. The epidemic failure of our educational system is at an alarming stage, and the future of our kids are endangered or at best non-existence.

In our state of Georgia over 60,000 of young people did not complete high school successfully this year alone. In five years about 60% of this population will be dead or incarcerated. This is the challenge we must address as a community, as a state and as a nation, otherwise, our nation will cease to exist as a super power and the hope and future of America is at risk.


King Empowerment parade is designed to bring awareness to this epidemic problem, promote excellent educational strategies, show case talents, pride, embrace educational values, mentoring, coaching, and prescriptive intervention methods and practices.
I need your help to get corporate to sponsor floats for low-income kids at elementary, middle and high schools...the parade of Hope for the future of America.

Will you join me in this effort? We must not fail; we cannot fail. It is a task that must be done for our sake and that of our future generation.

Can I count on you? Are you in? Can we do it together? I am ready are you?

Welcome ideas , strategies and feedback!!!

I think best way to approach this epidemic is to work in relations to an organization that focus soley on education for students in the state of Georgia. Then create a fund that will give scholarships to disprivleged students in Georgia. Also another way is to create a progaram that rehabilitates the many pople who failed to complete highschool. It would ahve to be flexible and cost efficient so that the misfortunate may have access to this program and be able to work at the same time.

I think this is a good idea people should get more involved with activities like this. Younger people should be focused more on the future

Dr. Babs there many areas we need to start with in this discussion such as better role model who incourage futher education. Futhermore, this generation seen to have a fascination with fast living and fast money. There will have to be an change in there thinking to realize a trade or college will enable these kids to obtain the income they are desiring. Finally, we have start at the elementary grades between K5-2nd grade and enforce how to study and encourage them on that making good grade are important.

Dr. Babs,
Thanks for bringing these alarming statistics to my attention. I did not know the situation was this dire. I am willing to help with upcoming parade to bring national attention to this problem. We can either try to correct this problem now or meet some of these kids coming out of the grocery store with a gun in our face later. Their lives can change before it is too late for all of us. We must realize that our destiny is tied up with their destiny. We are all in this together.

Education is definitely vital for growth and development of our country, state, city, community, and family. I feel the breakdown in the family as a whole has contributed the most to the digression of our society. Everything begins at home. Unfortunately the breakdown has already occured and most cases can not be reversed. Therefore education is the next step in moving forward. Education is something you can get for yourself. It's not easy sometimes but it is vital in order to change you circumstances. I feel a lot of problems children face with education begins at the primary level. In order to change a society you have to start with the children. They are tomorrow's adults.

I believe that it's a great way to help improve the statistics in Georgia of our fellow young people and an awesome way to be involved. If those numbers don't shock you then what will? King Empowerment parade is a great start and people should join the movement.

Dr. Babs i agree with your article. Growing up in the community that i was raised in, there was no guarantee that i would live past 18 or even graduate high school. Something has to be done to secure the United States of our super power. If not, you are right we will cease to exist.
