Sorry, Denarius. I feel as if I failed you, somehow.
An old Cherokee is teaching his grandson about life. "A
fight is going on inside me," he said to the boy.
"It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. One
is evil - he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed,
arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies,
false pride, superiority, and ego." He continued, "The
other is good - he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity,
humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity,
truth, compassion, and faith. The same fight is going
on inside you - and inside every other person, too."
The grandson thought about it for a minute and then
asked his grandfather, "Which wolf will win?"
The old Cherokee simply replied, "The one you feed."

The rule is that the majority rules, and if the majority of the people in his life were uneducated, he will be eventually do as they do.
Just because someone is born smart, that doesn't mean they were born strong enough to overcome the obstacles he had to. Those are 2 different attributes..........that lead me to believe that if there is a god, he is one twisted b***h.
You did all you could do. You're a good woman, don't beat yourself up over it.
