Washington, DC (CTZNSIX) –
Javaris Crittenton was a talented basketball player with high expectations. The Atlanta-bred basketball star climbed the hardwood ranks quickly, beginning his career in the spotlight. Crittenton’s story is one of wasted potential. A 2009 incident in the Wizards locker room would start a downward trend of his career. It led to failed opportunities and a life behind bars.
Village Raises Tomorrow’s Leaders
Crittenton’s story is a reminder of the power of the village. We each know young stars in our neighborhoods; kids with promise and potential. It’s not required but it is our responsibility to help kids protect their potential. Without a crystal ball it’s near impossible to see what someone can become. However, we are all aware of the things can derail a dreamer.
Take time to help your local stars. Help deflect the distractions.
