"I am merely addressing the feeling of fear, and the right of passage to acknowledge – I am scared! I am afraid! Now what? Act. Put your faith to work."
Bashar Barakah Jackson, best known as Pop Smoke, welcomed us to his party, whether we liked it or not. Some people didn't know what he was referencing, and for those who knew, we were willing to risk it all and attend this party anyway. If we ever questioned why he was moving "retarded," he told us. It is because of Molly, Lean, and Xan, he said he didn't like loud noises. "Lower your tone," the repercussions for not obliging to these instructions, "you could get hit." So, I already knew to attend this party and not make too much noise....
"When I held my children for the first time, it confirmed God is real. They had personality even before they could say, Momma. They had character even before they could walk. I was the wisdom to the knowledge they already possessed."
! THIS WAR IS FAITH & LOVE !
