“ The Life of Teenagers Ain’t No Joke ”
Keith G. Wright, author of “The Life of Teenagers Ain’t No Joke: Living a Courageous Childhood in an Unforgiving World” (ISBN 0977834204), believes that the youth are our most treasured resource, and has made it his mission to empower and inspire the people who will lead us into the future. His concern is that teenagers are being left alone to fend for themselves in an unforgiving world that is going in the opposite direction of integrity, inspiration, and the realization of goals.
“The Life of Teenagers Ain’t No Joke” outlines valuable Teen Truth’s - crucial information that will encourage understanding in young people, help develop skills and talents to reach goals and dreams, and conquer fears and obstacles to live an inspired life. Wright emphasizes that teens maintain a higher vision, and encourages them to push through their limited thinking and reach for goals that are beyond the basics of what teenagers typically associate with entering adulthood. “The Life of Teenagers Ain’t No Joke” is a powerful platform for both parents wanting to understand their teens, and teenagers needing to understand their place in the world.
Wright is the author and creator of the Life Ain’t No Joke book series, which is similar to Chicken Soup for the Soul. Wright speaks extensively at schools where he encourages and inspires teens to take a more serious look at their childhood and their future. “What I’m finding when I speak to young teens,” he explains, “is that not enough lights have been turned on in their minds showing the vast amounts of opportunity that’s available to them. And that’s what I try to do… to open up a new world of possibilities, a new world of what they can become.”
Keith G. Wright is the founder and president of Beyond Color Foundation, an organization devoted to racial harmony, multicultural unity, and "empowering everyday people to live famous lives." Born in the south and raised in the north, he is the son, and only child, to a single mother, educator, and a truly inspirational woman, Evelyn Wright.
