|Cabrini Green getting torn down - my brothers ol' home|
the streets of chicago...man we'd be breaking from 8 or 9 at night til 1pm friday and saturday nights:) Some nights we'd make about $250 bucks each:) not bad for two teens:) We were in a crew called the hard times breakers...greg, me and a bunch of dudes from cabrini green and the jessie white tumblers. man talk about 'wicked man'....man the best times:)
It also reminds me of the hard times...greg, my brother was killed by cops early one morning after stopping by my place and saying good bye...they called it suicide by police...i call it just sad.
he was a gem, we had great times i'll never forget and seeing this building being torn down today made me think of him, the good and bad.
It makes me think of the choices we all make each and everyday of our lives...to live OR die.
This was a chapter in my life and the experiences and strength it gave me i'd never change for anything...the good and the bad times made me who i am today.
To live...means stepping up, taking the challenges life throws at you no matter what and facing them head on...hell yeah life can be hard...but it's what you make of it no doubt. Choose to live it, choose to be strong and make those hard times teach you life lessons and make you stronger mentally, physically, spiritually! To die...means not facing challenges in your life, choosing to let drugs or others take on the challenges for you .... this only makes you weaker in the long run.
Now in my life i've had to learn from these hard times and learned love them while you got em! Live passionately, do all you can now and face lifes challenges.
this is the same for folks out of shape mentally, physically, spiritually...think about your challenges and face them....LIVE...step up and take them on....it will make you stronger my friends....THAT is what takes you to the higher levels and THAT is what can help guide others as well...they see that confidence of knowing...Dang, this guy is not guessing he can do this or that...he has done it...it's something you cant fake and when folks see this you are a light shining bright my friends...a light to guide others to know that they too can do it too and attain that same light if they stay the course and live strong and take on life and learn from what she throws at us and smile...because it's all lessons my friends...the good, the bad...all lessons.
My brother Greg is gone, but never forgot, because of him i have a deep love of music, dancing, movement and the knowledge of a world seen by very few...thank you so much my brother:)
So love hard, train hard and take the challenges head on:) good, bad, either way, you learn and grow!!:)
