Major hardships but choosing to push forward. Parents are so critical to a child's positive development or lack thereof. Powerful poem by the great Langston Hughes.

I understand, I do because that's been my life, since 6 years old.
Have you seen that commercial with the homeless girl blanket over her head, sitting on street, then suddenly she's now a baby sitting there crying. Not one day goes by without me feeling just like that.
