ARTIST TODAY- WHAT ABOUT THE CHILDREN
I have a heart for children who are underprivileged and who live in inner cities! Children who can't get a good education because of the school system! I not only care about children in Detroit where it is needed most in Michigan, but children in general.
I grew up in Detroit, and as a child living in the slums of Detroit there wasn't many educational opportunities. And even today schools are being torn down in Detroit. Detroit is # 1 for poverty rate!
I hope that Detroit gets better, but I do have memories of the slums and vacant houses. Children can't help where they live, they do need a chance for higher education so that they can rise higher than where they are. Children are the future and the earth will became a better place if they get the education that they need. Detroit will become a better place if people lend a hand to the educational system.
