The greatest characteristic that a leader must have is a four-letter word: Love. Because it's only love of the people that puts their worth and value above your own! It’s love of the people that will put their lives above your own! »
On January 20, 2017 there will be a change of the guard. Many, many Black, Brown and Native people are worried over what may come from a Trump presidency.
