Jason McBride and Kim Monson deliver on their book and movie challenge
Jason McBride of the Gang Rescue and Support Project (GRASP) and Kim have had a long-running challenge. McBride challenged Kim to read The Other Wes Moore and Kim challenged McBride to watch Gifted Hands: The Ben Carson Story. The challenge has finally been completed and McBride and Kim talk about the issues present in both stories and how discipline and a positive support network are two factors that resulted in the unlikely success of Wes Moore and Ben Carson. McBride also discusses the work GRASP does to help gang members and others learn to change how they view change, so they can make the decision to transform their lives and break free of a cycle of crime and violence. More information on GRASP can be found at its website.
