"I was born in LeMoyne Gardens, and I've seen struggles and drug addictions in myself, my family, and in the people around me. I grew up feeling alone and rejected, but when I was 19, I began to listen to the voice of God. God told me to drop the drugs; he had a purpose for me: to help bring people together in peace. People of all kinds and colors. We all bear his image. I started reading the Bible and following his lead. God is a spirit, not a person, and he doesn't have a color, so when he says we bear his image, he's not talking about our color or how we look. He's talking about what's inside. Once we get that, we can really come together."
