I don’t know the answer

I’ve been reading the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’s series on violence in the Milwaukee Public School system.

Normally, best cialis mind when I read about a problem the answer seems pretty obvious to me…but not today.

I have literally no idea how to solve what’s going on at MPS.

Throw every troubled kid in jail?

Reinstute corporal punishment in schools?

Have a zero tolerance policy?

How do you deal with a child like the one described in today’s article: the daughter of a drug-addicted prostitute, health no father, no home, no hope?

A good liberal would shout “more government programs.”

But since when is the government a good substitute for a loving mother and father?

I am literally at a complete and utter loss as to how to fix the underclass in Milwaukee’s innercity. Their color is irrelevant. I think even their financial situation is irrelevant. Their real poverty is felt in the deficit of love they receive on a daily basis and no government program yet invented has been able to distribute love from the back of a truck.

So I’m open to suggestions. Lay them on me. How do we end the cycle? How do we clean up the mess? I don’t have the answer. I’m hoping someone out there does.
