I am full of hope to see a site like this to encourage such a powerful message. Let us commit to understanding one another and allowing each other to live with an acceptable level of freedom. I am committed to my children knowing good from bad and value goodness. In today's world they need to be kind but capable.

Imani is my hero because she saved me from commiting suicide two years ago. Because of her I met my beautiful wife and now we have 2 amazing little girls and we love them to death.

As a part-time musician, I had told my wife that I would alternate using gig pay to buy musical equipment with contributing to family expenses. There was one piece of equipment I really wanted and I got paid well at a show last night. I realized I had used the last show's pay for equipment, so I steeled myself up and donated to an upcoming family trip instead. Because this was hard, I know I have a lot of work to do to become a good person. But that's what I want to do.
