    Life Is Good because we have Illmatic, the best Hip-Hop album ever recorded, no other rapper have a flow that is nearly as good as NaS! Life is also good because The Crewdesizer is coming to a town near my home called "Hässleholm" to show us swedes how real hip-hop is supposed to sound. REPRESENT REPRESENT!

    Life is good because I learned to forgive.  Before I learned how to forgive, I was unable to move on in my life. 
    My mother taught me the value of life at an early age. Because of the civil war in the 1970’s, she decided to cross the border from Belize. I loved my mother, but I did not feel love for her when she drank and could not take care of me. I did not see mother for days and maybe for weeks.  I missed her and I did not like staying with strangers while she worked. The last person I lived with was my grandmother, and I helped her sell food at the market. She talked to me about God and the world, and I enjoyed being with her. Grandmother would make me walk to the market by myself. I always did what she told me to because I trusted her. I did not miss my mother because I felt safe living with my grandmother.
    I did not want to go with my mother the day she came to pick me up. She left me at the market and told me to wait for her. I wanted to leave and go home to my grandmother, but I was scared that my mother would be mad at me. She probably hoped that someone would take me. I stayed at the market for a long time. A police officer found me, but I did not want to go with him. I wanted him to take me to my grandmother but instead he took me to the orphanage. I knew if I went with him that my mother would never find me.
    I lived in three orphanages. At the beginning I was happy living in the orphanage, but as I got older it became more difficult to accept it. I was scared because I did not have anyone to cry to.  I often felt like escaping but did not have anywhere to go. When I thought about my family, I wanted to forget about them forever. I blamed everything on my mother but I could not change the past. I was angry and confused in my life.
    Looking back, I understand that my mother made a choice for me because I would have a better chance in life than with her. I thank God for giving me the experience of survival and I have forgiven my mother for leaving me at the market at a young age.
    I prayed every day and night for God to take my pain and tears away. Now, I am thankful and blessed to wakeup every morning and be here.
    My humble beginnings have driven me to want to help those who are less fortunate. These lessons have affirmed my philosophy that education, sanitation, a safe food supply, and clean running water are extremely important. The struggles that I have endured as a child have greatly influenced me to focus my life on helping people who cannot afford all these necessities which many of us take for granted. My life is good because God is good.

    Life is good because I have a beautiful family and home to call my own. Our family was a victim of a home robbery where we lost everything of value, but we still have eachother which is worth more than anything material. We rose above the pain and stuck together. We built the house of our dreams and my two sons are amazing! Oldest just became an eagle scout and youngest is following in his steps. My father was ill and had his leg amputated to save his life. We are so thankful he is still with is. LIFE IS GOOD!
