“We gotta get the youth to overstand that sex, money, and tryna fit in with everyone else just because that’s what’s cool come with so many energies and attachments that don’t always keep you happy and move you forward !! We gotta do what works for us as individuals and as a family and not just be doing stuff cuz that’s what we see everyone else doing! There’s so much we gotta say and stand firm on!
