In this day and age, violence is taking our cities by storm. Most of our newspapers, magazines, radio stations, and TV programs are plagued with different categories of violence. The cause of this violence is complex. There are no easy answers to end the malaise. I have one suggestion though—going back to traditional family values.
We are trying very hard to help “The Twisters” grow as healthy as possible. In order to consolidate family values within The Twisters’ family, we thought it was a good idea to give them a game of Backgammon and Chess so they could play with their parents.
I was a lousy Chess player, but Abdiel has a good mind and absorbs information like a sponge. His father also has a knack for strategy games.
Below are several pictures of chess pieces which I captured before turning over the game to The Twisters. Here we go.
I can’t emphasize enough the importance of spending time with your kids. The family is the backbone of our societies. We have to stop the alarming rates of divorces, leaving behind confused kids bouncing back and forth like ping-pong balls. Practicing traditional family values is a good start. Good Day.
