"After a turbulent childhood, Shaikayla Rowen pushes herself every day to get the education she needs".

Excellent, it is now a proven fact, the more educated you are, the longer your life expectancy.

Good for you Shaikayala, hope a long list of children are paying close attention, get your education!!!

In listening to Billy Crystal, the star in "Parental Guidance" and I couldn't happen to fully agree with him more.

At some point in time, a child has to pick himself/herself up, dust themselves off and make something of themselves on their own for themselves. No longer relying on mom and pop to do everything for them.

Or very childish behavior of being contrary just for the sake of being spiteful. They'll find they are only hurting themselves in the long run.

My ex after our divorce became engulfed in childish spitefulness. She reverted back to acting like a child again.

It was and is time for my youngest son to rise and shine. Unfortunately, he will never rise and shine emulating the drinking habits of the Walsh’s on Sample Road. Alcohol and drugs doesn’t get it done. It simply destroys brain cells.

Keep in mind young lady,

My Patron Saint, St. Francis asserts that

"It is better to understand then to be understood"

St. Francis is so so so right.

The more educated you become, the more you understand and the less fear you live in with that understanding.
It doesn't really matter if other people fail to understand you, it is their problem not yours.

So, Go for it continuously, get yourself more and more educated. Educating yourself should never cease.

As previously stated "Good for you".

The smarter you are the less likely you'll resort to violence in trying to solve your problems. This comes at a bad time considering Dorner but it remains still very true.

Always try to expand your intelligence, no matter what obstacles the Lord may put in front of you, continually.

My ex-wife accused me of being a violent man, yet somehow, I graduated as a Catholic with a German last name from Baruch College C.C.N.Y. with an Accounting degree. I humbly think I am very intelligent. My mother in law thought I was very intelligent, more than I let on to others.

Graduating Baruch College certainly posed many challenges for me with many of my Hebrew professors especially in Accounting.

But I made it there and eventually worked for the Most Prestigious Accounting Firm in the world as an Auditor.
I am still trying to expand my knowledge now to this very day in Natural Health.

And CSPD takes the word of my ex-wife whose lucky she has a Boces degree in hairdresssing, the one claiming I’m violent when she knew the complete opposite was true.
Shame on you Det. Haydu. And Kathleen O’Prozac.

Barbara Haydu, you couldn’t detect a fly on the wall, I’m sorry to say. Happy your gone.

At C.C.N.Y. Downtown, I had a transferred uptown History Professor Dr. Gadol Hebrew for Cohen.

She flunked me and on one exam completely all objective essay questions actually gave me a zero.

With my last Name "Jerry" she assumed I was German. I am Polish and one of my Uncles flew missions over Nazi Germany. Even teachers can be idiots.

A Commissioner in West Palm Beach once asked me if I justified my actions in same fashion as Hitler.

I use funds from my parents estate money to feed my children.

I do not think my CPA exam was graded fairly either!!!

There are going to be obstacles and hurdles in Life, everyone has them, hang in there and all will work out.

On the flip side and according to “Jesus”, God restores that which has been lost or taken away at least two fold.You've lost your parents, you'll be blessed with many children, you watch. A young lady very close to her mother who worked for me, now has two daughters who look exactly like her.

Well as fate would have it, I wind up taking (4) semesters of German with a Dr. Jofen

She was the most wonderful Hebrew German women, probably the nicest women I have ever encountered in my life. She treated me like a Jewish mother would her son, even better.

For some reason she really took a shine to me and gave me two A’s a B, and C. and left me in charge to proctor quite a few exams even while I was taking them,
This is the trust and faith this woman had in me,
I’d like to point out to all Christian readers and I am a Christian, this woman in that she was Hebrew, has a better chance of resembling the Blessed Mother, then the one currently portrayed and currently displayed.

St. Andrews in Coral Springs the picture of Joseph resembles a close HEBREW friend of mine whose name will remain nameless for now .

Things in life then to even out for the faithful, so always remain faithful to God.

This story can bring tears to your eyes, however that’s a good thing, every tear drop releases chemicals that damage the “Heart”.

So you in essence made your heart healthy by shedding a few tear drops..
