Good Job Tomar & Bashiri!!

In the wake of all the negativity and deaths that is occurring to the youths of you guys age. It's refreshing to see that you guys have not allowed this negativity to influence, who you guys are, and the goals you guys want to achieve. I am proud to call you my Son and Godson, please continue this path, and as you know, your Mother and I, as well as your Godmother and Godfather are all behind you guys to support, and to continue to guide ya'll. It's always easier to do wrong then right, if this wasn't the case, we have more people in the world doing the right thing. Keep in mind your goals, and the steps we have taught and will continue to teach you, so you guys will not become statistics, but rather prove those statistics wrong. Remember, "Turning nothing into something is God's work, and you get nothing without struggle and hard work" - Nasir Jones
