The True Story Of Ya Dream Deferred! Drop-Out Tale.

Daily tales tell of young people who are unable to stay afloat with the day to day travails and facing the facts of joblessness and sexual activities that exacerbate housing conditions along with boyfriend and girlfriend issues at school and home the stress and the streets cause them to leave home and drop out of school; especially in the Latino community! Too many times the lack of resources in the schools and In the government leads to frustrated youths who see the future as something too far fetched for someone dealing with real life on a daily basis. No trust funds or Bank account and life insurance policy to fall on we have to be twice as determined to be a success! Leaving school is not an option for folks like us! Once in taking a break from school is a huge mistake because once you have the rhythm Why not finish what you started. Today due to the web y’all can be anything you desire and one thing for sure ya parents will support y’all as long as you are doing well period! Okay πŸ‘

The tragedy of a dream deferred is that it occurs more than you or anyone can imagine and each time a young person gives up on their dream it tears me apart because I also have my own American dream as I was born in the Dominican Republic raised in Washington Heights NYC and educated in the USA πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ. Never again πŸ‘ Mental Slavery is the New Enemy!
