Kudos and High Five To Bishop Rudolph McKissick Jr. For Taking On The "fire challenge"!!
Lord have mercy, I am so glad to hear somebody is trying to get the word out about how dangerous this new activity can be....that got some teens trying out. The “fire challenge” involves teenagers pouring an ignitable liquid, often rubbing alcohol, on their bare skin and then lighting themselves on fire. The photos and video taken by a witness are subsequently uploaded to various social media sites.
A partnership in greater Jacksonville FL, is being formed locally to fight what has become popular on social media -- challenges. In the spotlight now are young people who set themselves on fire and share video of the experience on social media. Bethel Baptist Institutional Church, is teaming up with Duval County Schools to help reach young people on the dangers of the challenges. Source: First Coast News
