    Good luck X!! I was just thinking of that song “the foundation” of the speed of life… He says to his son……
    “Let no man ever hold you down or suppress you
    It’s the 90’s the police just arrest you,
    disrespect you on occasion take life
    By the time you come of age they’ll probably blast on sight”

    That was 1996 and he was right!!
