Daily, headlines across America bemoan the loss of another youth to urban violence. Lives that weren’t valued because those who took them did not value their own. We shake our heads as the death toll rises. Some have even suggested that the only way to curb urban violence is to call for the National Guards. We ask God, “Why?” and pray for a solution.
The solution is here…..The time is now. Bay Ridge, a residential Christian junior college for African American males located in Kendleton, Texas is committed to restoring our young men’s sense of value through education and moral accountability. It is an idea whose time has come! Visit our web site www.bayridgecollege.org and learn of our plan to save young men and to prepare them to be productive citizens and fathers.
