Breaking the Cycle

I’m just tired, I’m just all tired. I just wanna get my daughter away from here and get my family away from this because it’s like they don’t care about the low-income people. If you’re not making enough money as they’re making, they don’t bother it. And I don’t think it’s right, I don’t think it’s right to us.

"You have to make peace. I feel you have to make peace because if you don’t then you’ll be caught up out here with everything else that’s going on around you. You have to learn how to take yourself outta that and keep your own peace ‘cause if not you’re not gonna have any peace. In reality we don’t [have peace]. The only peace we may have is when we are asleep or when we are in our own homes. But then you still have bullets flying through the windows."

This is me breaking the cycle with my daughter.  I don’t want my daughter to go through nothing I went through.
