''This is another wake-up call. If you don't wake up now, it's going to get worse and worse. We are in trouble; we are in trouble. God is trying to get us to understand that we're in trouble. We're in trouble as a country, we are in trouble as a city, and we're in trouble in our neighborhoods. Our families are in trouble because they are under attack, and God is trying to tell us that it is time for us to get our act together. We are in trouble because of the breakdown of the family. We are in trouble because we've stopped parenting our children. We're in trouble because we're busy trying to be our children's friends and not their parents . . .
