Man it's been some kind of week for Ted Williams the brother with the "golden voice" found panhandling in Columbus,Ohio a few short weeks ago.
Like many around the country and world I was hoping and wishing the best for this brother,and I'm still hoping and wishing the best.
But after watching him for three days this week on The Dr.Phil Show(Which I don't normally watch) I have conclude that before this brother go back out into the working world,he must get some type of help for the issues that plague his life.
Yes all of us have issues that plague our lives but not many of us get a chance like Ted Williams has to get help.
Alcohol and drugs has affected Ted Williams to the point that this brother don't know which way is up.
Turns out he hasn't been clean and free from alcohol and drugs as it was first reported by him,despite his deception Dr.Phil and others,including me and others I know still support the ideal of giving him a second,third and fourth chance.
Alcohol and drugs are a monster in my community,that monster has affected me personally and I know you just don't stop and quit without a lot of help,spiritually,mentally and medically.
When I first saw this story and viewed the video over at another blogsite(My Brown Eye View),I instinctively knew the whole truth wasn't being told.
I try not to be judge,jury and hangman in my assessment of people today and it's hard sometimes,because when it walks like a duck,talks like a duck,nine times out of ten it's a duck.
Like so many families(mine included) alcohol and drugs has created such dysfunctionality that only God can navigate any kind of solution.
Not even Dr.Phil with all his education and resources can get Ted Williams and his family better.
Ted Williams and his family has to REALLY WANT to get the life that God intended for each and everyone of us.
Dr.Phil can only take them to the water,he can't make them drink it!
