Proverbs 22:6 “Train up a child in the way he should go: when he is old, he will not depart from it”, verse 7 goes on to say “the rich rule over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender” let us not leave our children with no choice but to be poor let us help each other to give them the best they need, so that if ever they become poor then it will be their own choice we will have done our part.

To me it’s a matter of survival. I know the world is often a harsh and terrible place. However, to reach the peak of a mountain you must push through cold and exhaustion. Love is what pushes me, it has guided me through every experience, putting me in a place where I know what I want and have prepared to get it. I will extend love to whoever is ready to embrace it”.
