From A Gang To God: In the gangsta lifestyle, you end up one of three ways: JAIL CELLS, WHEELCHAIRS, or GRAVEYARDS.

Butterfly Evolution sits down with Author, Gang Consultant Ronald Baldridge 

Ronald is founder of P.I.A.N.O. Inc., Partners in Alliance Needing Others, a 501c3 non-profit organization, that mentors young boys from single parent homes (predominately single mothers) Ron was born in Greenville, Mississippi, Washington County, on August 12, 1967. His mother moved Ronald and his older brother to Memphis, Tennessee in 1974. She taught them both to judge people individually . However, there were two types of people Ron hated - white people and the police. Ron and his brother grew up in the inner city of North Memphis with the values of love, family, respect, and determination. Seeing his mom struggle to keep food on the table Ron made a decision to help by any means necessary. He strayed from the path in which he was taught and chose a journey of seeking wealth. This journey took him down an unexpected road of self-destruction. Ron started selling drugs and making $1000 every three hours was easy. Ron easily put aside the values his mother worked so hard to instill in him. He continued to make wrong choices that led him to not only becoming a member of a North Memphis gang called the Night Hawks , but Ron also became an enforcer for one of the most feared gangs in this country - the Gangster Disciples . It was on July 7, 1985, that Ron s life would change forever. That night in a gang shooting, he was left paralyzed from a bullet that shattered his spinal cord. That night a white police officer would enter his life.
