According to Black Enterprise, the bank started strong, but a number of bad investments, financial mismanagement, and the expense of building a new headquarters building in Washington, D.C. wiped out its assets. Even large contributors like Fredrick Douglas who tried to keep it afloat were unable to salvage the doomed institution. It wasn 't that everybody else was doing well, however.

The NA meeting had a guest speaker named Adam, the most surprising thing about meeting were candor and humor evoked by the speaker. Adam acknowledged that he has been addicted to drugs for seventeen years, and this behavior started when he was in the 7th grade. Adam was genuinely outspoken and humorously shared being in and out of treatment facilities over 28 times costing hundreds of thousands of dollars. The group really identified with the speakers story, and this was exhibited by laughter and comments from the crowd. Actually, I didn’t have any perceived notions about attend NA meeting, my only contention was to better understand this community.

The population of both jails is something that stood out to me the most, in my opinion Wabash has almost zero to no space for inmates, while Miami County seemed to have some space to spare. Miami County jail can hold about 180 some inmates, while as Wabash County can only hold around 70-80 inmates.
