Good evening, Sunday is coming to an end and I must say it was a good Sunday to relax and enjoy the final day of the weekend. Tonight I want to reflect on something that happened a few days ago. Just this past Tuesday I was on my lunch break, buying stuff for my girlfriend for valentines day. I was already over my time for my lunch break, but I needed to make one more stop to finish the final touches to the surprise that I had for my lady. I decided to stop at the dollar tree to get one little thing. As I was walking up to the store, I noticed there was a man between the ages of 25 and 27 standing in front of the store.When I was going in to the store, the man was asking people for dollars as they walked out. Take in mind, this man did not look homeless but he was dressed with his pants hanging off his butt and talking like these new rappers. Not thinking about him, I went in the store, got my stuff and walked out. As soon as I got out the door, the man asked for a dollar. At first I was going to say no but I gave in and gave him the dollar because its better to give than receive and God will bless me back. His story was that someone stole his phone and some how got stranded at the store. After I gave him the dollar, the stranger then proceeded to ask were I was headed so he could possibly get ride. I politely told him I needed to return to work and I was not headed in the direction he was going. At this point, I started thinking to myself, what is this mans circumstance, that is keeping him from making a better life for himself? I question this, because I am younger than the guy that I saw on Tuesday and I do pretty good for myself. I never really understood why people have to dress like thugs and take the fast life to get rich or succeed in life. To me, that’s not good at all. So tonight, I am asking anyone who may be able to relate to this situation to kind of give me some insight as to what could be the mans circumstance that could be keeping him from getting his education, a job, or life that will keep him out the streets? If this is something you can answer, please leave a comment below that can make some sense of this matter. I hope everyone has had a good Sunday and I look forward to your responses. Ken signing off. Good night.

Welcome to S.M.A.R.T. Talk with Ken. My name is Kenneth Koonce Jr. I was born in January of 1995. Yes I am a 90s baby and Capricorn. I was raised in Tampa Bay, Florida. I have live in Florida all my life and I have never moved to another state. I grew up mainly in the Oldsmar, Palm Harbor area. I am the Oldest of two children. Some things you should know about me is that I used to be a DJ, I am a college student currently going to school for computer networking, I love to cook and bake, travel to see new things, and be around my family close friends and loving girlfriend. This is my second time writing a blog, so I have a little experience with doing this and I am excited to do more with this blog. The first blog I had was geared more towards music as I used to DJ. I quit DJing in 2015 due to unfortunate circumstances and now I have found something else that will keep me motivated and give me something to do outside of work and school. You should also know that I am a hard working individual who always puts forward a lot time and effort into reaching my goals and dreams. As you read this blog, you will learn more about me as I will learn about you and hopefully someone can gain something from this ongoing experience. Please feel free to leave feedback, ask questions, or even tell your story. This is a no judging zone. No one is perfect and we all have to work on something as we are still growing no matter how old we are. So stay tuned for this exciting experience and enjoy. View all posts by S.M.A.R.T Talk With Ken
