Times have been hard for everybody around the world. There's more that we as Americans can do to help improve our society and the citizens within it. I understand we have to work everyday, take our kids to school, go to school ourselves, crack open one more soda or brew more coffee to stay active, but it's our job as adults to set the example for the generations to come. Teenagers and children look up to the older generations and look to them for guidance and with that title we must give them a positive image. We all have balance issues, we all have a walk of life that's different than someone else's, but we all have a heart. I made this album to help unify the powers that are alive in this earth to bring balance to the lyric content within this country. This album might not be heard by everybody and i understand that, but I'm still going to continue my journey no matter what. I know this isn't your normal "thank you" liner note for an album, but I have to make sure the message is heard on a wider scale. We need to stop sleeping and we need to stop hitting that snooze button we so desperately clutch to, and wake up and change ourselves so we can help change the world. Put God first in your lives and watch his plans take shape. Stay Mighty.
