Inspiration for the New Year
World Net Daily ^ | 12/27/08 | Pat Boone

Change we voted for, and change we got. And now, as we peer anxiously into future, rounding the corner into a new year, we're hoping mightily that the changes in leadership and policy will somehow be equal to the immense problems we're facing.

Bleak prospect? Yes, but hope comes from another direction, exemplified by another black leader who is determined to counteract this deadly trend. His name is Jesse Lee Petersen.

I've known and been involved with Jesse for a number of years. He's a minister and an activist, an author and speaker, and the founder of a beautiful organization named BOND, Brotherhood Organization of a New Destiny. Much darker in skin hue and shorter than our new president, Jesse has been working tirelessly as a "community organizer" himself, addressing deeply serious problems like broken families, poverty, homelessness – and abortion – at ground zero in the black community. He believes the answer to all these problems is not just money. It's character.

Nice article!

Because he's keenly aware – as we could wish our next president might be – that abortion on demand, for any reason, is killing too many black babies and absolving too many young black men of responsibility for their sexual activities, he and associates picket abortion clinics across the country.

But he is also approaching the problem preventively by conducting a BOND After School Character Building Program, literally teaching character and morality to young men aged 13 to 18. Involving guest speakers, discussion leaders and parents, he guides young men toward responsible and moral lives – each student held responsible to share what he's learned with his peers! He really is the modern day Booker T.Washington!

This valiant man, Jesse Lee Petersen, is making a difference. He's making waves, and he deserves our support. He's swimming against the tide of popular opinion, of "politically correct" societal thought, and effectively proving that old-fashioned instruction in right and wrong and the building of character can reverse destructive trends. I'm contributing to his efforts and supporting them. I hope you'll visit the BOND website or call BOND's offices at 800-411-BOND (411-2663) and get on board with a donation. The more you find out, the more committed you'll be. We need more Jesse Lee Petersons in our America, if we can find them.

Nice photos, Abby, and great article from Pat Boone, a man unafraid to go against the current, about a man (Jesse Lee Peterson) and organization (BOND) swimming upstream with head held high. Pat is right—character is the answer here, it’s all that has ever worked. And we need it more now than ever...

Booker T Washington wrote a book on character. I meant to get a copy to read. “Imagine” all young children having to take a character class at school!

listen to Jesse’s really interesting radio show at bondaction.org. He is one of only two talk radio hosts that I am aware of that actually claim to be saved and not sin anymore. I know it is true too and it’s very nice to have that available to all of us.

Buraq 0bama is just another leftist tool of Satan that seeks to destroy the family and replace it with worship of the state.

If you examine EVERY policy in the agenda of the left, you’ll find that each is simply another attack on the sovereignty of the family.
