First of all, I need to show you something.

00:00:04--> 00:00:13

Before I start, I need to say one last thing. And the thing is I need to see smiles. I don't want to see no problems. I want to see smile.

00:00:16--> 00:00:17

I need to see smiles.

00:00:20--> 00:00:20

strongly smile.

00:00:28--> 00:00:30

00:00:41--> 00:01:25

The brother said, you know yes, I do a lot of traveling. In fact, I'm, I was supposed to be in the UK. But when the brother called me to talk about this program, I reshuffled my schedule. Why? Because I wanted to come and attend this. This is very important. In fact, I do hold a lot of activities and programs and retreats for the youth hamdulillah all over the world. And I love doing this, you know, and the message today that I'm going to be sharing with you all today is geared towards the youth. And even those who have some gray hair, also use for me, right? All of you, those who have air, and those who have no hair are also used for me. All right, so and this message will

00:01:25--> 00:01:28

be in the form of questions.

00:01:29--> 00:02:09

In fact, I'm going to ask about four questions all together. All right, four main questions through these questions, we're going to form some sort of vision or mission, the shallow data to what we're going to be talking about. But and this message, like I said, is geared towards the youth. But before I share this message with you, I'm going to share with you some stories, you guys like stories, some stories, in fact, the boys out from the club and about the youth, the slack yourselves, youth who have changed history, youth who lived with a vision with a mission, right? So I'm going to share with you and trauma hotel, and maybe a couple of stories about some amazing

00:02:09--> 00:02:17

youth, the very first youngster I'd like to share with you. And first of all I want I don't want the sisters to feel some sort of

00:02:18--> 00:02:51

oblivious as to what I'm going to be talking about. Because this message when I say the youth, that means sisters and brothers is all the same. You know, whenever I'm going to be talking, you know, when I when I talk, it's all of this this message is geared towards what the brothers and the sisters it's not only about the youth isn't only about I'm sorry, it's not only about the brothers or the math, it's for everyone. The the first message or the first example that I'm going to share with you or the first illustration I'm going to share with you is the example of a boy, it was actually a boy,

00:02:52--> 00:03:04

a boy, I'm not going to mention his name, you tell me his name. All right. It's a boy who lived and was born in a country called Iraq. Anybody from right up here?

00:03:05--> 00:03:06


00:03:07--> 00:03:17

Like, I'll give you some more about this boy. And then you tell me that the answer though the one who tells me the answer, we've got Of course of chocolate or candy, but don't know the answer at me. You got to raise your hand.

00:03:19--> 00:03:21

He was born in a country called iraq

00:03:24--> 00:03:29

from a father who used to make idols.

00:03:31--> 00:03:32

Yes, sir.

00:03:34--> 00:03:35

00:03:41--> 00:03:45

all right. He brought him around. He said I'm his father used to make idols.

00:03:47--> 00:04:13

And Ibrahim was a youngster. Some of us when we talk about the story of him, we picture him as an old man, you know, with a long beard and an Imam or something. No, in fact about him when he saw that his people used to worship idols, right? He he he got sick. He did not like the fact that he's people used to worship idols. So what did he do? He said that he went

00:04:14--> 00:04:40

on this day, and they used to have some sort of celebration, like a festival, the Festival of the gods or the idols. Ibrahim did not participate in that festival. Instead, where did he go? He went into all the idols were were placed, and then he started breaking them one after the other. But he left one idol which he did not break. The biggest one.

00:04:41--> 00:04:46

He left it alone. He didn't break it, and he left the X next to it.

00:04:47--> 00:04:48

And then he went home.

00:04:49--> 00:04:59

By the way, I'm going to tell you this, I'm going to ask you this and I don't think I don't think you will know the answer but you can prove me wrong. Ibrahim when he went and he broke the eyeballs

00:10:27--> 00:10:43

They tried to do something to him of course. Yeah. What? They tried to burn it. How? What did they say? Unless palaces that look, I will say, those who speak Arabic, you should know this. They said

00:10:46--> 00:10:53

00:10:54--> 00:10:55

I'm just joking.

00:10:56--> 00:10:58

Are you from Syria? No.

00:10:59--> 00:11:03

That's easy. It's all the same region of Palestine have its own philosophy.

00:11:07--> 00:11:34

And it's alright. But no, that's not true. What happened is that we tell you what happened a lot. So just as that beautiful article, and he says, How do we know one so and he heads up and he says Bernie and Bernie, Bernie. But in fact, what they It's been said that they were preparing this fire for over four months, some said six months, being trying to build this blazing fire. And then when they went to burn it by hand, they could not take him into the fire. So you know what they did to him?

00:11:36--> 00:11:38

They built what's called?

00:11:39--> 00:11:40


00:11:43--> 00:11:50

Law. A law is law. You're right. They built something called a catapult was the name of a caterpillar in Arabic.

00:11:53--> 00:11:58

Was it that? Was it that Manzanita something called manjung. And so they brought

00:12:01--> 00:12:06

in all this thing that you know, like it throws like fire or, or rocks at the time, you know, it's like,

00:12:11--> 00:12:26

so why? because they could not think about him in terms of a fire. It was so blatant fire. So the game the first stripped him from his clothes, I want you to imagine this, he was only 16. How, who's 16 year 16 year, you're 16

00:12:28--> 00:12:28

you're 16

00:12:30--> 00:12:33

you're 16? You're 60 to 60 from The Sisterhood

00:12:34--> 00:12:35

of 18 masaba.

00:12:37--> 00:12:46

Ibrahim was 16. And he had a vision. That's what I'm trying to say here. He has a vision. So what did he do, buddy? Just give me

00:12:48--> 00:12:49

another flowers.

00:12:52--> 00:13:05

They stripped him from his clothes. And then the tight him around with a rope around the cutter port. They tighten the rope and get the knot around the catapult. And then they were about to tow him who came to him and he said

00:13:10--> 00:13:12

to them before he was thrown into the fire.

00:13:15--> 00:13:18

Alright, I want you to imagine this with me.

00:13:19--> 00:13:21

Now just imagine you're right. You're gonna say

00:13:22--> 00:13:48

Shiva. Yes, you're right, God. I want you to imagine Ibrahim All right, can you imagine with me pretend? Just like BB BB. No, it's not Barney. I tell you guys are older than Barney. Just pretend. Alright, so here's the boy him in this catapult and he was about to be thrown into the fire. Imagine. Maybe like me, Allah forbid, I'm going to try to relate to this. Maybe you have a big problem. A huge problem. We did something wrong.

00:13:50--> 00:13:52

And you're in a very big trouble.

00:13:53--> 00:14:02

You're going to be thrown somewhere you know, you're reading big trouble. And then someone comes to you and say, Hey, do you need some help? Are you gonna say?

00:14:04--> 00:14:12

Sure, we're human beings. Well, let me write. You're in a big trauma man. You're done.

00:14:14--> 00:14:17

Because he saw what he did you did on your phone.

00:14:22--> 00:14:26

Pick up something here is my buddy. I'm talking to him, you know, speak the same language.

00:14:28--> 00:14:35

So what happened was, you're in big trouble. You're gonna die. He's gonna kill you. And then somebody comes to say, Hey, buddy, you need some help. I can help you.

00:14:37--> 00:14:37

What are you gonna say?

00:14:39--> 00:14:49

This person who came to Ibrahim was not a human being. Imagine the master of all angels came to him and he said, Do you know how big is

00:14:51--> 00:14:55

Jubilee. Christian country boy. Do you know how big God is?

00:14:56--> 00:14:59

How many wings does he have to know?

00:15:01--> 00:15:03

60,000 happy that's too much

00:15:07--> 00:15:18

60,066 66 seven area that was in some colleges like your password or something.

00:15:20--> 00:15:20


00:15:21--> 00:15:23

600 wings

00:15:24--> 00:15:53

600 links the only used one wink. I don't know if you heard of the tribe of loot from saddam it's called the people of loot. He only used a tip of one week and carry the entire town the entire village up into the sky to the heavens flip them and drop them kill them off with the tip of one week geogrid has 600 weeks he came to him and told him or even a he like I ended I mean hacer

00:15:54--> 00:16:02

la and okay that I mean, do you need our help? I'm having goosebumps. Because this is so we can all relate to this.

00:16:04--> 00:16:08

To this, we can relate to things like Do you need help?

00:16:09--> 00:16:34

When you are in dire need of like your maybe financial situation or you have imported tomorrow or a surgery or anything and somebody comes say do you need Do you need some help? I can help you. She bring himself to me says Allah kinda mean Harshad you need any help about him? What did he say? He says from you know, for a lot, yes has to be a lot with me.

00:16:36--> 00:16:44

Remember this, he says Allah is sufficient for me. I will not need more help from you. I need help from Allah alone.

00:16:46--> 00:16:54

Remember this? If Allah is with you, you have everything. But if Allah is not with you, you don't have nothing.

00:16:56--> 00:17:01

Maybe all your friends can be with you. But if Allah is not with you, or why he won't have nothing

00:17:02--> 00:17:20

and maybe all your friends at school, they can be against you. And may be trying to plot things against you to cause you problems right all these no non Muslim friends or one could be Muslim friends. They couldn't be against you but if Allah is with you, you have nothing to worry about.

00:17:22--> 00:17:54

him told him from you I don't need no help. I only been here for Allah has to be a lot with me working always remember this. You can say that all times whenever you go through some difficulties. He has to be alone. Am I looking? Can you say that? Say you say has to be a lot. When am I lucky? What happens? He was thrown into the fire. Now the million dollar question, buddy. No, no, no, not you. I like the hoodie guy. So the guy SST I like you my friend. Because you remind me with my son. He's always like with these things. What is this thing man? So he wants to go cool that's it. Okay, cool.

00:17:57--> 00:17:58

Did the fire burn him?

00:17:59--> 00:18:00


00:18:01--> 00:18:08

Here's the question why the fire did not burn the body that heavy heavy him

00:18:12--> 00:18:14

because I made the fire cold

00:18:19--> 00:18:24

sense yes. Allow me to fire cold but I want you to give me something more powerful.

00:18:26--> 00:18:37

Who's the creator of all? I didn't hear you who created everything? Did Allah create the fire? I want I want something What does he have to say?

00:18:38--> 00:18:39


00:18:41--> 00:18:43

Oh Allah How to say his beat

00:18:44--> 00:18:45

Tell me

00:18:46--> 00:18:51

tell me tell me. Oh Allah has to say is B and it is

00:18:55--> 00:18:59

a team's B entities are allowed to see big entities.

00:19:01--> 00:19:05

So Abraham was doing to the fire but a lot of people what's your name?

00:19:07--> 00:19:07


00:19:18--> 00:19:20

A lot of the fire Dr. novel Cooney.

00:19:22--> 00:19:38

Here's another million dollar question. A lot of the fire all fire be cold and peaceful. alibhai now you What's your name? Malik. Malik. A lot of the fight to be cool and peaceful. Why cool and peaceful. Our club set off RP could only buy

00:19:39--> 00:19:43

why he said Be cool and peaceful party by Malik.

00:19:44--> 00:19:48

you what you need. Mohammed why Mohammed? Why cool and peaceful?

00:19:52--> 00:19:52


00:19:54--> 00:19:55

Give me give me

00:19:57--> 00:20:00

give me I love hugs by the way. You know what? Why don't you all stand up there.

00:20:00--> 00:20:06

Everybody stand up. Everybody stand up and not the person next to you. Come on, I'd like you to stand up on how the person

00:20:16--> 00:20:17

wants to have you.

00:20:19--> 00:20:19

Give her a hug.

00:20:23--> 00:20:24

Did you guys have each other?

00:20:28--> 00:20:29

Sorry, that's your problem.

00:20:37--> 00:20:37

All right.

00:20:39--> 00:20:48

Allah subhanho wa Taala told the fire to be holy and peaceful in the body. Because if Allah was to tell the fire to be good, Ibrahim would have frozen to death.

00:20:49--> 00:21:00

But he says be also peaceful on the body. So he was inside the fire. Now, here's the question that not even the Pope and mentions. What was Ibrahim doing inside the fire?

00:21:05--> 00:21:10

Yeah, you guessed right. Ibrahim was inside the fire prayed.

00:21:11--> 00:21:17

In a time of solitude, he was alone. And he was praying. Now you when you're alone, what do you do?

00:21:24--> 00:21:25

on my phone

00:21:35--> 00:21:53

about him was alone. And he was praying that the fire burned even though he did not burn, because the fire is only a creation from Allah. When Allah with something, that's what's going to happen. That's the word of Allah, he really set up and they have another quick one another youth before I move on to my message quickly.

In the dorms. I lived in the dorms in San Francisco. There was this boy this guy not too long ago. He was in the dorms.

00:24:12--> 00:24:33

A young boy. But if every mesh are very nice looking Muslim, very soft and shy guy. And he was always on his own. And he didn't do things a lot with people and whatnot. The girls, they saw him and they saw that this guy is always like he didn't talk to the girls and whatnot. You know what they did to him? They came for him for girls.

00:24:34--> 00:24:40

And they knocked at his door he was inside. He opened the door and the all part

00:24:42--> 00:24:43

in his room alone.

00:24:46--> 00:24:46

What would you do?

00:24:55--> 00:24:56

It's the

00:24:57--> 00:24:58

door near you.

00:25:00--> 00:25:03

Would you do it right away?

00:25:12--> 00:25:13

What would you do man?

00:25:16--> 00:25:17

all over you and you say okay nothing

00:25:19--> 00:25:19

is only gonna do

00:25:21--> 00:25:23

they're doing things What are you gonna do?

00:25:25--> 00:25:26


00:25:29--> 00:25:30

boxing, boxing

00:25:34--> 00:25:36

he went and he jumped off the window your wire

00:25:37--> 00:25:40

didn't even Yes, he jumped on he didn't die

00:25:42--> 00:25:57

they got caught he was in the news on the newspaper they got coffee they took those girls into the into jail Of course. And it was a big thing that happened. So how about that reminds me of user friendly setup once you lock the doors and then she came in she told him kill him. And then

00:25:58--> 00:25:59

what did he do?

00:26:00--> 00:26:04

What did he do? Let's say your use of the girl

00:26:06--> 00:26:08

run run run and then she's coming off

00:26:10--> 00:26:12

you're not running man. You're so beautiful. I can

00:26:13--> 00:26:13

come here

00:26:23--> 00:26:27

just trying to run after him. And then what was he saying? He was saying yeah

00:26:28--> 00:26:33

just like the spear who's always trying to text you and send you all these big lips

00:26:36--> 00:26:37

and then what do you do

00:26:40--> 00:26:41

what do you do

00:26:43--> 00:26:44

I sent him away

00:26:45--> 00:26:47

No, you don't fall for the trap because

00:26:49--> 00:26:51

he did not fall for the trap use of had a vision.

00:26:52--> 00:27:12

He could have died but if Allah subhanho wa Taala will try to say here is that anyway you are a lot is above you watching you so here's my questions that I'm going to share with you today. The first question is quickly inshallah and you don't have to give me the answer but I want you to think about it number one, what is the purpose of your beat?

00:27:14--> 00:27:20

Why are you creating what created you as sisters and brothers? Why a lot created to be better for

00:27:25--> 00:27:26

the matter

00:27:29--> 00:27:34

for him to test you so Allah created I just did test us

00:27:37--> 00:27:38

00:28:26--> 00:28:28

He created you so that you can wash the dishes

00:28:30--> 00:28:44

and take the garbage out and you to shovel the snow while I granted you to just go to go to school and wake up and and come back and eat and good sleep and you know what am I gonna do

00:28:49--> 00:28:50

00:30:58--> 00:30:58

Number two

00:31:01--> 00:31:03

Who do you be friends? Who are your friends?

00:31:05--> 00:31:07

You know, there's a scene in Arabic that says please

00:31:09--> 00:31:11

tell me who you befriend that tell you who you are.

00:31:13--> 00:31:22

who aren't your friends at school? Or outside? Would you be friends? Are your friends are only those who whenever they need me they come to you?

00:31:24--> 00:31:27

Mashallah, are those who are really your friends? Really?

00:31:28--> 00:31:30

Have you guys heard of this boy in Mississauga is

00:31:32--> 00:31:33

the guy who died. And the

00:31:35--> 00:31:38

first thing you heard of him the

00:31:40--> 00:32:08

day was that because nobody, you know, the whole story. The whole story is he was with his friends, he came, in fact, he was just going to shut something from the convenience store. And then he made his friends from school. Hawaii had a problem he cannot run fast. So this kids from school, I think my my son came and told me this one time, you know, sometimes they you know, they have these guns, you want Ganga from this school and from this other school and whatnot, and they fight with each other. Is this something that you guys deal with? That's cool.

00:32:09--> 00:32:10

You know what?

00:32:12--> 00:32:13

It is hard to

00:32:22--> 00:32:37

be careful. Be careful, be careful. He was not actually he know, they came to him. And he said, You know, this guy's going to fight with him when they come with us. And then they came the other guys. They were fast. They run away. And he was by himself. They started beating him up and he killed them.

00:32:38--> 00:32:41

Who do you go out with? Who are your friends?

00:32:42--> 00:32:51

Are your friends doing? So maybe? Oh, they called you because you know this halaqaat on Thursday at the data foundation? Why don't you come with me this this guy is amazing is really cool.

00:32:57--> 00:32:59

If you don't have friends, you don't you can get bullied.

00:33:02--> 00:33:03

No one knows who you are.

00:33:04--> 00:33:19

You're Batman. But here's what about the vision or whatever the vision of yourself, you know, you can make a difference. But difference, not just hang out with them. Because you know, you want to look cool. But you don't get like a phone.

00:33:24--> 00:33:32

So here's the thing. Here's the thing. There's Hadith of the Prophet Mohammed that says, you know if you can give me just a few more minutes, and I'll be done shall because this is question number two.

00:33:33--> 00:33:35

The Prophet Muhammad says

00:33:37--> 00:34:00

Come on, you have a man who will follow the footsteps of his friends that each one of you meticulously choose their friends. Because we said Arabic that a friend is a mirror on to you. You can see you know, when you look at me as your friend, you can see to me, yeah, me, which means you can see your thoughts to me. I'm your friend, I'm your buddy. I like you and I love you. If I see you doing something wrong, nice, the kind of

00:34:01--> 00:34:03

a tomato is wrong.

00:34:06--> 00:34:36

You know, this is a good friend, a good friend who cares about you, when he doesn't see you, you know if you're sick, and when he calls you he comes he wants to you know be a good friend with you not somebody who whenever you have some money or some food or something, he comes and grabs you he was supposed to take advantage of you abused you I think what you should always shout out the IRA. But again, it's up to you guys. But if I were you is what I would do. I think my friends you know, I would have to go to a process like a filtering process. Good friend and that friend

00:34:37--> 00:34:48

as patriot process, because your friend can help you also not only this dunya your good friends can help you in the mafia. You know, how can your friend help you in hell? Let me tell you, I'll be frank and helping.

00:34:49--> 00:34:51

People will be in genda together

00:34:52--> 00:34:59

had inspired by the way people will be together. And then one of them would say where's my friends, the One Stop

00:35:00--> 00:35:03

He will be told when we didn't make it, which means he's in hellfire.

00:35:05--> 00:35:07

The men would say that we look

00:35:09--> 00:35:09


00:35:11--> 00:35:14

your text, I will let you have that activity.

00:35:15--> 00:35:42

Or Allah, my fulfillments my pleasure will now be totally fulfilled. And you bring my friends on so with me, and he was a believer, but he did a lot of sales and then he happened to be thrown into the fire. So he was telling me I won't be, I won't be really happy Anthony bring my friend so and so. So Allah with him, Go and get him fired from her fire. And Allah would prohibit fire to burn you. And he would go and you will find him and get out of

00:35:43--> 00:35:44

your good friend. Pick them.

00:35:45--> 00:35:48

befriend them. Don't befriend them once you know

00:35:49--> 00:35:58

this question number two, question number three and four. Only two more questions. Question number three guys. Girls. Are you proud of your religion?

00:35:59--> 00:36:04

Are you proud of who you are? No, come on. Tell me truly. Are you proud of your

00:36:07--> 00:36:09

chicken? come up to me? Are you proud of your

00:36:12--> 00:36:13


00:36:22--> 00:36:27

Are you really proud of who you are? Come on. Are you proud of your names?

00:36:28--> 00:36:39

Yes. So did you change your name from Mohammed to mo? change? Can you change it from Mohammed to Mike? Did you change your name from from Kevin?

00:36:43--> 00:36:46

Did you change your name from Rebecca to Bob?

00:36:51--> 00:36:53

While you're changing your name, Aren't you proud of who you are?

00:36:54--> 00:37:04

When I'm telling you because some people do actually change the news because they want to do cool. Have you seen those guys that put their press all the way down? The short, short stuff.

00:37:07--> 00:37:12

Everybody's doing this and all of a sudden, the pants down and let me show you.

00:37:16--> 00:37:19

And this is like this one is up and the one is down.

00:37:25--> 00:37:27

COO, COO, coo

00:37:29--> 00:37:30

coo coo.

00:37:31--> 00:37:32


00:37:44--> 00:38:11

I'm trying to tell you heavy or heavy, you should be proud of who you are. You should be proud of your identity. Because some people they actually know things that they are that they're not things that they know they want to do cool. They want to do it not actually, you know, because what I mentioned the fact that some people do change their names because some people do change their names. Because they're not proud of that identity. You should be proud of who you are. Be proud of you because you're Muslim.

00:38:12--> 00:38:23

Sisters be proud of who you are. Be proud of your job. Be proud of your identity. When someone comes at school, what's up a thought comes? Why would you think trying to pray?

00:38:25--> 00:38:36

Why would you try to pray? Salat comes I'm proud. I'm almost them. I'm proud. I'm a Muslim. I used to drive a cab in San Fran. Give it to me like I'm a Muslim and I'm proud.

00:38:38--> 00:38:39

I'm proud

00:38:44--> 00:38:46

to be proud of who you are. I'm proud of my name.

00:38:47--> 00:38:59

In front of your names. Yeah, exactly. Be proud of who you walk in front of your identity. Be proud of the fact that to the Muslim, I'm good enough. That's the third question. The last question on the last one. Are you obedient to your parents?

00:39:01--> 00:39:03

This one actually requires

00:39:08--> 00:39:12

obedience to your parents. Do you honor your parents?

00:39:13--> 00:39:13


00:39:16--> 00:39:46

See, here's the thing. Here's the thing. I'm not expecting you to give me answers. I'm expect you to think about these questions. That's all. The first question is why? Why are you here? Why allocated you? Second question is could you be friends who are your friends? Third question is, Are you proud of who you are of your identity? Fourth question is, are you obedient to your parents? That's all think about your parents, especially your mom.

00:39:47--> 00:39:59

Especially your homes, on my own muckleneuk I always say that. And I always say the fact that your mother has given up all her dreams because of your dreams. Truly, truly, your mom

00:40:00--> 00:40:06

She has her own dream still, but because of you, she gave up her dreams, because of you. And I always say,

00:40:08--> 00:40:10

I always say, if a mother

00:40:12--> 00:40:13

is gone,

00:40:15--> 00:40:20

for me, the whole world becomes black and white, like the whole world will change color.

00:40:21--> 00:40:23

Everything can be replaced and I always say that

00:40:25--> 00:40:34

your friends can be replaced, and your phone can be replaced. And your cars can be replaced in your house can be replaced.

00:40:36--> 00:40:40

But your mum can never be replaced. So is your father.

00:40:41--> 00:40:44

They cannot be replaced. They are who they are.

00:40:45--> 00:40:47

Have your parents gone for longer? before? You

00:40:50--> 00:40:52

know they've got four.

00:40:54--> 00:40:54

And maybe

00:40:55--> 00:41:19

some people come and tell them are you going for hypocritically Smith to have for me. And they give them their names, please remember me. You don't have to tell your mom specially or either your father or that Mom, please, when you go by the house by the cabin make me don't have to remind them. In fact, your mother, she's going there just to make it easier for you. In fact, your mother, she makes more to have for you and she makes her own.

00:41:22--> 00:41:56

Remember, you don't remember, you don't remember when you were a baby, who may be a times she spent the whole night waking up when you were sick, you'd only remember these things. And remember when she took a bite off of her mouth to give it to you, when she took the blanket off of herself to give it to you because she wants you to stay warm. And she stayed cold that night. He remembered his things. We don't remember these things. And then let me tell you this, I have in a visit. And I swear by Allah, I swear by Allah, we will not know the value of our parents. And so they they they're gone.

00:41:58--> 00:42:16

Once they're gone, and you know what I mean by gone, gone gone, then and only then we will truly know the value. So if your parents are alive today, grab that opportunity. It's a golden opportunity and be friends. Be good to them.

00:42:19--> 00:43:06

honor them, support them, serve them. Serve them. You may say you don't know what my father would never agree. You may say my my father, we don't get along. He does not speak my language. He doesn't understand me. Yeah. You know, your father knows what he knows he's where he is. And so is your mom, if she knew better, she would have treated you better. If you follow those better, you will help. That's all he knows. So do not blame your dad or your mom. One day in Chicago hotel, you will have a dance. Oh, you will be that? Sorry, one of the USB that. And when the sisters you've been a month, and then you will understand. And you may say now Oh, it's not gonna happen. Or you may say it's too
