Another interesting quote I had seen was, "85% of all youths in prison come from fatherless homes". I found this in Donald Miller's book To Own a Dragon. The quote is also on the Belmont Foundation web site http://www.belmontfoundation.org/.Very interesting and thanks for posting this. I hadn't thought about this before, but I'm sure its true. A lot of kids who are in trouble come from broken homes and quite a few have fathers who are in jail.So, if male police officers go into their class and read to them, as I do dozens of times a month, that helps explain why many of the kids who I guess come from broken homes latch onto me. I'm not just a cop, I'm a guy. I'm glad your son was diagnosed early on. That's another issue is some inmates have never been diagnosed until they were in prison. My sincere hope is my programs and my Book 'Em event can spread all over as if so, with law enforcement being behind it, I think it can really bring these issues to light. Thanks again, my new MF friend.mazske
