Quote of the Day: “It starts at the home. It starts at home. It starts with how you raise your children. If a young man doesn’t have a father figure, he’ll go find a father figure. So you know, I can’t blame the system. It’s unfortunate that we make such easy work for them. I grew up with guys who did decades [in prison] and it had as much to do with their fathers not being in their lives as it did to do with any system. By the time we got to 13, 14, different things happened. Now I was doing just as much as they were, but they went further … I just didn’t get caught, but they kept going down that road and then they were in the hands of the system. But it’s about the formative years. You’re not born a criminal.” – Denzel Washington
