    Don’t go for independence. The negro can’t manage economies. It makes me sad to admit this fact. Look around the Caribbean and you will see if you doubt look west over the ocean to mama.

    Listen, I know life is getting harder by the minutes but we must not stoop to certain levels no matter how boxed in we may feel. I mean, is it worth risking your life, your freedom, your relationships? Just as there is lots to be gained if one were to succeed in their illegal venture there is also much to lose if caught so why risk it? The thing is we’ve all lost trust in God, the one who provides and/or we’re just too caught up with the glitz and glam of this life and so we fall for the enemy’s trap become vain and succumb to the certain social pressures which at some point, don’t care how long it takes will. E our demise. Please quit being your own enemy and trust God and look forward to the life he has awaiting us than this temporary place. My heart goes out to this family and all the other families that has or is going through this situation or one like it. I pray that the Lord God would minister unto you and have mercy on your souls. WOW, these are sad times
