Growing up, I never put too much thought into “the future”– that long distant and magical place always just beyond the horizon. Born and raised in Queens, New York, I was immersed in the leftist mindset of self-entitlement and self-superiority. Never once did I consider how unremarkable and fragile my existence truly was.
I was smart, strong, good in a fight, and clever enough to not get caught when I was up to no good…at least until I wasn’t. Enter a good soul with a badge, who spoke on my behalf, and a kind man with a gavel. The long story short is that I was given the opportunity to redeem myself with public service, provided it was documented and I reported directly to the judge. I don’t, to this day, know what these two good men saw in me, but I am so very thankful. As part of my community service, I was enrolled in The Explorers– a program for teens designed to introduce them to various opportunities in law enforcement. That’s when I began to change.
