You kids don’t have anything better to do? Go outside and play, do something. When judgement day comes, Our Maker will look at the path we chose. From the very first step taken, to the very last. I pray we are judged without prejudice and that our strengths and qualities are not forgotten! That our childish immaturities and poor decisions (criminal activities) do not balance evenly when measured alongside the Life we lived in it’s entirety. Some people don’t have compassion or the capacity for forgiveness. This cat “ You All” are clowning on, he’s got something that you all are lacking. HEART!!! Days are numbered, yup. For all of us!
If the need to comment on things that do not involve, pertain to or personally affect you does something special for you, by all means, you’re entitled. I won’t share my thoughts on how lame or weird I think that is. Or how it’s actually kind of sad come to think of it. Might even be a normal thing to do for singles with a ton of available time and nothing better to do. I don’t know, seems pretty lonely, maybe something to entertain if there was no one in my life. Just I, a computer, the latest gossip and my opinion. Sweet....#screentime

Donchichi he has something.... but he stole a vehicle at gunpoint from someone and I wonder if you would be so forgiving if it was someone that you loved that he did that to. He could have hurt, or killed them. And for what? A car? That's not heart, that is dumb!
