“What the scholars are saying”
Working in the field of education for the past 18 years, I have witnessed first-hand the mental, spiritual, and emotional shift of the minds of youth and adults. In this critical time of our existence, the hope that illuminated in our hearts and minds is fading fast. The mentality that working hard and developing persistence are attributes youth and adults must develop, have now become fleeting attributes. This is where TIME-ER has stepped in to change the futures of youth and adults.
TIME- ER is systematically reversing the urban myth of “Crabs -in- a- Bucket” The myth states that some communities are so toxic and individualistic that when one crab (person) tries to escape the bucket, other crabs pull that crab back down. Through the implementation of 19pledges.org, TIME-ER is systematically altering the mentality of youth and adults by creating a culture of self-development with the ultimate goal of community development. Through these activities, participants will escape the proverbial bucket, with the oneness to reach back and pull the others out.
Congratulations to TIME-ER and Roosevelt Muhammad for tackling this noble task of saving the next generation.

One of my favorite quotes is a quote by George Orwell; “In times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.” In my over 15 years of designing , developing and implementing public health and social impact programming at various levels, now more than ever before this idea of “universal deceit” has become a reality. Our youth languish as the family and community systems they grow and develop in cannibalize themselves. We live in a society that holds youth accountable for the perpetual inadequacies of adult guides and caregivers. Roosevelt Muhammad and the TIME-ER Team have consistently demonstrated that excellence should be the standard that we all ascribe to reach, particularly when our work impacts the lives of our youth and adults. Kudos to Roosevelt Muhammad and the TIME-ER Team for their commitment to educating and empowering both youth and the adults that shapes their lives. This 19pledges.org site is yet another tool in our arsenal in the war to win back our youth, our families and our communities.

A Three Step Method on Defining Leadership; with the Utilization of Three Words! Wording: Being Sensitive, Aware and Accountable to the people, population, group, organization, or individual that you are directing your message!
Impression: How am I being perceived with my body language and/or word choice!
Impact: The results after the message, do I have people doing what I ask of them, action and doership!
This definition can be in the hands of a negative person or positive person!!!
