I am reading "The Other Wes Moore." this book should be mandatory reading for all parents, educators, and anyone else who has a relationship with a child. It was written by Wes Moore and is a true story. Two African American boys born in the same year, same neighborhood, given the same name, absentee fathers, etc. One works in the White House, the other is on on Death Row for murder. The white house Wes Moore contacted the death row Wes Moore and wanted to see how their lives could be so entirely different when they shared so many similarities. Either could have ended up with the other's fate. This book shows how important the choices we make in life are and how any one person who touches a child's life can make a difference. If one adult would have reached out to the death row Wes Moore, his fate could have been changed. Heart breaking and interesting stuff! Saw it on a college required reading table and was interested since my Bachelor's was in Literature.
