Wow, this is how I have to start this off..this was a great show & I truly enjoyed it...we need more men like Dr. Perry, I think what you're doing for these young men is wonderful...but I must comment on the young man Malik, it appeared as though he was on something the entire time was he?? And the grandmother, really she was in denial, and clearly not listening...but Dr. Perry you handled that situation, great job....Dr. Perry you really need to come to Detroit, so many black young men could truly benefit from your help....and the one young man Deron said it, the streets treat him better then family, all I could say is wow so sad, I have (3) young adults and I show all of them I love them so very much..I would truly love to be a part of something like this here in Detroit, because just to see Malik smile because he had a job and was headed in the right direction made me cry.....LOVE THIS SHOW DR.
