I'm Allen ... nice to meet you. I was born and raised here in the Houston Heights. I went to school here from Elementary to High School and off to U of H. I love to blog, although i'm not that great at it. It's much harder then I thought. I like to play chess, meditate, read and enjoy fishing too (one time I caught a big shark!).
My grandpa bought his house on 26th street in the Houston Heights for $55K in 1965 on a double lot, can you believe that?! Things sure have changed here for the better. I like to inspire folks with positive messages, and I hope to change the world. I volunteer at Divina Providence church, helping abused children. Someone helped me (Mr. Leonard Davis) years ago, so i'm paying the universe back. I was a kid with little direction, and left home at 14 years old. I never had a father, or father figure, in fact I never even seen a picture of my father. I was raised by my mother, who happens to be lesbian. She did her absolute best, but with food stamps & section 8, she can only do so much.
Surrounded with turmoil & drugs all around me, somehow I made it thru. I think seeing how drugs can affect a person with my own two eyes, really scared me as a child. So it's fair to say I have had my fair share of problems. I don't share these issues to make you sad, I hope that it reaches a child out there to inspire him or her & that you can make something of yourself, even when you are given the worst situations.
I also hope to inspire folks who are doing well in life. Give back to society with your time and or any efforts you can provide. I am a true example that one person (Mr.Davis) can make a difference in the universe.
Luckily by the grace of God, Mr. Davis helped me. He was a pasture at a church, & took notice of me. It is super strange how one single person, can change the universe. Thank God
