    Awww 🥰 it's tough in the hood and I understand not everyone is dealt a good hand in this life but there are still CHOICES that you must ultimately make and are responsible for. God bless those who are doing the right things to get ahead in life cuz the world needs more superheroes in it! The lil kids are looking up to the adults around them.
