I did not have to grow up in LaPlace, LA although I can tell you we are a product of our environment. It's evident to me that Duke has a large conflict going on inside. Only the loving light of God can change a man. Whether it is thru a Godly woman, or as in the case with Saul, a light in the wilderness.Here's my hopes and prayers for Duke: May the God above have his way within you. May he lift you up, and take your intense talent to levels of fortune so that you can be a shining example to those from places like LaPlace, that they too can rise up out of their environments, and become leaders of men toward God.
