  1. In twenty minutes i will meet with you and crusade through the streets as we do most days . Right now you are letting the old man graze and of course not eating yourself . Denying yourself while giving yourself to every passer by. This is why i crusade with you,to make sure u have that lil’ extra back up that everybody needs . Because you deserve some back up. Our own version of Mother Teresa.
