2/9/16 - On this day, I got the worst news ever. Marshawn McCarrel shot himself in front of the Ohio Statehouse that evening. I was numb. I was in utter shock. No words could have expressed how i felt that night. Though this tragedy made me feel like all hope was gone, I stopped thinking about the loss and thought about what was gained. Marshawn wanted to give his community the opportunity to do something with their lives. He wanted us to LIVE. Marshawn was a poet and he passed in the most poetic and rebellious way. He wanted us to finally get the picture that we are much more than what society makes of our people and that we shouldn't settle for less than what we deserve and then some. Though his life ended the dream is still alive. We will continue to POD fam and we shall soon see the changes you tried so hard to obtain. Rest easy thug. Much love to you.
