Change of Plans

The city of Cleveland has been through ups and downs over so many years. Living the simple life in the city of Cleveland wasn't boring at all. But as I grew up their was a change of plans in my city. Why is their so much senseless murders in Cleveland? It's in my opinion that when Cleveland won the NBA championship it made the city stand together with over 1.4 million people believing that dreams do come true. But it is in that same opinion that once again their was a change of plans. Spiritually you could see the spirits of the people whose lives came to a sudden or tragic end. A few of those spirits were my family and friends. So I speak from experience of what I've seen happened to my beautiful city. I raised all three of my son's in Cleveland. It's been a hard task keeping all three alive by myself. Now I truly thank God for the gifts that he stored in me to help keep my son's safe and off drugs with no guns in their hands.
