We all have memories of an event or circumstance which either adversely or positively affected our lives. The incident may be humorous or heartbreaking. Either way, emotional subjects touch the readers’ souls.
Think back. What did you learn from an experience that could help a young adult today? A quick example: A story about how a not so trustworthy boy or girl friend borrowed your car and wrecked it. How the adults responded, how you felt, and what happened could be a “Don’t Let This Happen To You.”
An example of “Do Let This Happen To You” could be: In college, when the dorm forced a new roommate on me, I initially fussed, freaked and generally aimed to get her to move out.

Thirty years later, she is still my friend.
