Creflo Dollar — Street Fights
You may not realize it, but our children are in a fight for their lives. Today, 12 young people between the ages of 10 and 24 will be killed or murdered.
Now, that's 12 youngsters killed or murdered each and every day. Violence is the third leading cause of death for young people. Children are fighting and dying on our streets every day.
Today, we're going to take a long, hard look at the problem, the causes, and consequences of youth violence. But instead of discussing this with trained and educated experts, I'm going to take this discussion to the streets.
Today, I'm sitting down with a young man who lived and loved the thug life until the unchecked violence landed him in prison. You better believe this young man has something to say. So, if you're at home right now with your child or teenager, pull them close and sit them down as we get real, right here on "Your World."
My first guest today grew up in a Washington DC neighborhood and hung out with a group of other teenagers who, he says, did whatever it took to survive, which meant fighting, robbery, and other criminal activities.
Now, at the age of 15, he was involved in a fight that left another young man dead. And after serving 13 years, he was paroled in October of 2016. Now, he's putting his life back together, and making strides as an up and coming rap musician who has opened for artists like Uzi. And folks, E-Class is on a mission to let other young people know that a life of violence is no life at all, and prison is no place for teenagers.
