        • og well when you’re having random question after random question asked and talking about things that aren’t necessarily good memories it’s not exactly easy to make eye contact the entire time.
      • Mr. DonT CarE
        • yall dumb af!!! she saying she hate seeing him looking down like that…she hate seeing a nigga down and out!! he looking on the ground cuz he thinking bout a lot of shit in his life and cuz of that she feels bad for him!!!
      • Butter Butter
        • Lot on his mind… Stressed behind the time he’s facing
      • LoWkeyT OfficialPage
        • og when you see demons you ain’t looking nobody in the eyes fam

        • We need more resources for our men when they get out of prison. Mentors, shelter, job opportunities for felons, and more programs. Ice is very articulate and I’m pretty sure he qualifies for SSI for his Schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. Not sure if he’s getting it or not. I would love to see one of the gang members get help and have a update interview. I pray that love, support, an abundance of opportunities, and protection finds him and stays with him for his entire life.

        • I couldn’t keep my eyes off this guy. I could feel his inner struggles. I want better for him. He deserves better. I wish for him to explore his education. There’s a depth to him that makes you want to root for him. I wish for him the proper care for his mental illness. He’s been in the system just about all his life, it’s all he knows. Sending him all good vibes and positive energy.

      • Shena Henderson
        • Everytime he held his head down, it tugged at my heart strings.
      • Santonioh25
        • This got me: “Our lives just ain’t the same. I don’t live by the rules. As much as I want to, I see that’s not going to get me no where. But it’s how you play it.”
