Why Mentor Boys


Occasionally, I do a post about the picture above my desk of Lee Boyd Malvo, the young man of Washington Sniper fame, with his mentor, John Allen Muhammad. It's a photo that motivates me by reminding me, everyday, about the hunger young males have to be seen, valued, and directed by men. His mother, Una James, said that her son Lee had spent most of his life seeking a father figure. This mentoring story is tragic and dark testimony about the lengths to which young males will go for blessing and guidance from men. There are too many of these stories.
