A few years ago it would be unheard of to see a young person knock out an elderly man and unthinkable that they would punch older lady. But security cameras are catching these thugs doing just that. A few years ago, when a police officer told you to stop doing what you were doing and put your hands in the air, you did just that. (At least I did.)
I’m a slow learner. I struggle with focus. I was tested for learning issues at a young age. After four decades in the education system in some form or fashion, I learned how to get A’s. It wasn’t always that way. I failed a number of classes in high-school. I even failed gym class.
I was a born procrastinator. I am not wired as an “alpha type A go get ‘em type.” In school, my grades reflected my laziness. I have been on academic probation at two universities. However, when I began walking with God, He gave me direction and purpose. This translated into actions my day to day life.
