How important it is for me to tell them myself to my community today to go all you'll you'll give me my hope and inspiration. To get one time I was on I was being in Indian and African with the question was about. But the answer. For me was. How come I have to always. A combined had to get out my community. Knight idea on notice that. Everything that we a trained and conditioned to do. And education get a good job whatever it is it is done with the notion. Close to get on out we'll hood. Some equipment but what about the need to community that may be why. And what lessons of absentee all it was should we just certain tax bracket you you have to of the yourself from the hood from among the able lot of community. As look atlas is really what.

For me I think within our community something out of it see changes on the unity and unification you know because we always talk about crabs and about movement in this we were put being and he always. You can that we like to blame everything on my name is over try to wait for Dan Wheldon. Put everything you know problems and access them but really well part of the system the system right in being is since it was.

You don't jump Bob Patten went on the back and put them back we grow old Ingraham couldn't open it we was all put it when not if so why do something for obvious that. Instead of let's break it apart praise from food to decide action. That's what goes on you know me you just taught me and I've heard was long enough heard where the plot that never. Actually really knew would admit it teaches taught me that thank you for that thank you for that but you know you also spoke about the system. Right assistant you know I just when it was it would do the neighborhood we wish you did when they see is and woodland press would.

And lifted him up and talking about the importance of home Fulton and learning how to belatedly just important to vote right we got no audible how to use double. How to Harden and you see. If educated about applicable age in different additions that you pay. Global like different elected. Officials do so I added notable with their.
