      We don,t know whether you have any or not. If you have teen sons- especially if they are slightly under-aged, please DO NOT make such remarks like this. This brings SHAME and DISDAIN to all the hard working parents here trying to bring their boys up in the right path, as well as your own

    Many go around saying they cant die and they cant be shot but the thing is you may be at the wrong place at the wrong time or the right place at the wong time or the right place at the right time. Whatever it may be.What really matters is the ignorance of these shooters as long as who they targeting is somewhere they are shooting at, you might just be there.It happened a few years ago that a particular guy from SKB who might be living in the VI or some part of the world as he is always on the run. He entered the island unnoticed as those who knew him well said he had on a wig and was dressed like a woman and that same night there was a big shooting at a disco where about 2 guys were killed and few days later he came upon a group of people talking and even before he can be part of the conversation many just disappeared ,some making excuses that they had to go somewhere or something to do as they knew with his presence anything can happen. Many are causing havoc whereever they may go. Many home are scattered,some countries socio economic situations are threatened ,folks are afraid to go to certain functions, tourists are sometimes afraid not only to visit several countries but to wander away too far from their hotels , cruise ships, etc. The integrity in the home sometimees cause the breakdown not only there but in a Nation. Wow what a world we live in . Father Lord come and take back your world
