The Act of Oppression & Consequence of Depression = Slavery

Heroes & She-roes replaced by Empty Promises: Thanks – It has been a while and some have flattered me by saying the last article was so good that it drained me – Not really and with so much wrong happening to our youth, it’s impossible not to see their suffering and feel their pain - With the death of so many friends these past weeks have been very emotional but I’m still on ZROD & ZVCR, Saturdays, Mondays and Wednesdays.
