This Book Blew My Mind!

by Nikki on 12/24/2007

War of the Bloods In My Veins is an eye opener! Reading this book gave me a whole new understanding of what might be going on in our kids’ lives and minds that could drive and trap them into the nightmarish culture of a gang. I never really knew why and how they joined, or realized how the “occupational hazards” of membership—the violence, the drug abuse, the crime, the lack of value for human life be it their own or anyone else’s—are actually mentally and emotionally traumatizing to them as individual human beings. Eventually, this unattended recklessness finds a way to touch all our lives. But War of the Bloods In My Veins is neither a “poor me” story, nor a glorification of the warped behavior of this segment of American society. Rather, it is an alarm being sounded, a spotlight being shined on the horrific reality of the twisted mentality, inner pain, unhealthy environment, and seemingly hopeless conditions that our youth struggle to survive every day—often without consistent, positive support, guidance, resources, or alternatives. DaShaun Jiwe Morris was blessed to find a constructive direction for his life. But for the many still stuck in the clenches of destructive gang life, sweeping change—both internal and external—is critical to fixing this American problem. Not more prisons, not more judgment, and not more indifference; but sensitivity, compassion, and our collective commitment as a people to get involved and create real solutions. It’s time to move beyond all the philosophical rhetoric and just tell people exactly what they can do to make a difference. War of the Bloods In My Veins inspires me to give serious thought to this serious issue.
