~70% of murders, 40% of robberies, and 20% of aggravated assaults in the U.S. involves a gun. (FBI)​​

~According to the National Adult Literacy Survey, 70% of all incarcerated adults cannot read at a 4th grade level.

~According to a special report, Early Warning, from the Annie E. Casey Foundation, “…the process of dropping out begins long before high school. It stems from loss of interest in middle school, often triggered by retention in grade…and that, in a great many cases, is the result of not being able to read proficiently as early as fourth grade.”

~Reading on grade-level by the end of third grade is one of the most critical milestones in education. Studies show that 74% of 3rd graders who read poorly still struggle in ninth grade, and third grade reading scores can predict a student’s likelihood to graduate high school.

-Fatherless boys and girls are: twice as likely to drop out of high school; twice as likely to end up in jail; four times more likely to need help for emotional or behavioral problems. (US D.H.H.S.)

WHAT ANTHONY IS SAYING


"Our dreams will drive our decisions!"


"Put that ego on a keto plan!"


"When we open our mouths and speak, we let others know who we really are."


"People will know our names and often bypass that. They begin to call us by our character and actions...Honest, Liar, Hateful, Loving, Bold, Afraid...What do they call you outside of your name?" 


"Don't tell me you want to go to another level and when I begin to challenge you to level up, you get in your feelings and stop the process. Do you want to confront and overcome obstacles that are blocking you or not!?"


​"We help you and others STOP violence BEFORE it Starts! Think about it. When violence is prevented, it rarely makes the headlines, but it is well worth it!"


"Conflicts will come. What I choose to do will make things better or worse. Who I am to the core typically comes out in the middle of my conflicts." 


"You are the only YOU you have...take care of you!"


"Show me who you are connected with and I can predict your future with great accuracy."


"We don't stumble into being excellent, just happen to be successful, slip into being a caring, fall into being a great person, friend, spouse, parent...These things are done on purpose, intentionally, and deliberately!"


"The greatest battle in life is Me vs Me! I have to fight myself daily and do what God is directing me to do!"


"I'm grateful."


"What do you say to yourself during the best of times and the worst of times? Think about what you are thinking about and speak life into your life! Compliment yourself in a healthy way all day...everyday!"


"Hurting people are everywhere. When hurting individuals mismanage their hurt, we will eventually have violence."


"We didn't pick our biological parents, decide what neighborhoods we would live in when we were birthed, select the schools we would first attend as children...However, no matter what circumstances and environments we were born in, we can leverage those situations and become a more powerful person!"


"If the shoe fits...Put it on and own it!"


"My circumstances will not take my peace, steal my joy, cause me to consistently behave out of character...Right in the midst of my greatest battles, watch what God will do in my life because I made up my mind to pray, obey, and enjoy EACH day!"


"Don't let your public, professional, private, and personal haters distract you from your destiny. WHEN, not if your haters strike, stay focused and you will get stronger."


"Sometimes we just gotta take the L! There are so many lessons in the losses and if we leverage our losses well, we will win more."
