“What you do can be good or it can be bad but when it comes to the consequences ethier way your happy or sad.”

“A community with disparity has very little to learn because they live it graciously with a lot of equity they’ve earned so if you visit one, a community that’s in despair just pull up a chair and ask them what is going on they’ll take you there.”
