    You came fresh from the lab with this one......While its true last week was a tragedy, but the hood has been a tragedy for years, and we still see no relief....Where are the workers from various cities, where are the words of comfort from world leaders, where are the vows to wipe out poverty by any means necessary? Where are the millions and billions of dollars to feed the folks who are truly in need?

    Keep spreading this message So'ja!!!

    So'ja,

    The first word that came to mind after reading this was, ****!

    You sure know how to dish out a healthy helping of reality.
    Anyone who reads your work and doesn't wake up from the smell of the coffee you brew(strong & black), is braindead!

    Your Lady Street So'ja bows before you with MADD LOVE:heart:

    True Dat!

    There is no rest for the down trodden, the forgotten or the disfranchised--there is only reality--you speak truly when you say it has always been this way--Amun-Ra
