What you and I have experienced in life began before we came into existence. One of the greatest enemies of the present is the ability not to understand the historical foundation that is the structure of our lives. Have you ever heard the words, “what you don’t know won’t hurt you” or “what goes on in this house stays in this house”? Many of us have spent years living behind these words. We have allowed these words to stunt our growth. The author expresses to his readers the importance of understanding the quote; “the past holds the key to the present, and the present holds access to future.” The author explores some historical implications that have had an effect on the current lifestyle of many individuals. He elaborates to women the importance of knowing what your name means. Leaving women with the quote; “I was Responsible for waiting on you, I was Accountable in my search for you, I was Consistent in finding you, and now I have to be Persistent that I don’t lose you.” He helps women/men to understand the difference between Bruh and Men. Leaving men with the quote; “When the man is out of place, the woman becomes displaced, and the children become misplaced.” He goes on to express to parents and educators that the key to saving our children is through communication. We must learn to meet our children where they are by understanding the language they speak. He leaves parents and educators with the Cherokee proverb; “If you listen to the whispers, you won’t have to hear the screams.” The author leaves his readers with the words: “If you leave and grow, you can come back and plant.”
