Getting Back

Hey what's up y'all? I am trying to get back on track. With all the things that have been going on lately, it has been hard for me to get focused. Seems like my time has slowed down, but I haven't been able to get anything done. But I did want to be a witness to let everybody know hard work does pay off. As you all know, Jimmy got out, and he has been doing quite well. I mean just last night someone sent me a email and said he was on the radio. I am very proud of him. I do miss all the times that we would sit down and write and come up with ideas to share with the world. So many times guys get out of here with great plans then find there plans crashing down on them. I am a firm believer in preparation. People laugh at us all the time because we are not doing the thing that everybody else thinks is fun. I think I told you before, I haven't watched tv or the listened to the radio in 3 years, other than just for a few seconds. And man, has that sacrifice paid off . If I watch two hours of television a day there would be no way I could write all my letters and answer all my emails. We must have priorities. Well, right now I have several job offers when I touch. There are people that I gave the game to, that is telling me how weill it is working. And I have only been giving them a little. Most people don't have the time for me to give them the full extent of what I know. There is always something to do. Another party, another tv show. One more drink or another cigarette. Ecomony is bad and if you want to survive it is time for you to take control of your life. Otherwise you will be out in the rain. Alright you all take care and don't forget to check out Freewayenterprise.com. It is another prime example of what I am talking about.

Peace and Love

Mr. Ross,
My name is Deekin. I'm a Los Angeles Brother living in Japan. Things got too hectic for me in LA so I moved to Japan and got a job teaching English in 2005. Change of environment was what I needed. I've been doing the No TV thing for a couple years now and it changed my whole thought process. There's TV in English in Japan, even CNN, but I stopped watching it 2 years ago. I wish you all the best of success in your future endeavors; and I hope that you are able to continue to shine as an example to Black Youth that its never too late to turn your life around. I heard that you might be released in September 2009. If thats true, congratulations and Welcome Back to the Outside World.
