I believe in Jesus Christ as my Lord and savior. I believe that Jesus died for my sins, and rose again, and that's my belief. I still don't know what 'Christian' means. I'm a follower of Christ, but I keep making a whole bunch of mistakes. And I thank God for forgiveness.
What's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.

Katharine Lee Bates
When I was 17, I worked in a mentoring program in Harlem designed to improve the community.

You know, maybe I was just born in the wrong time, but I love all things romantic. Puffy understands that. For my last birthday, he covered my hotel room floor with rose petals and had flowers and candles all over the room.

During the Great Depression, levels of crime actually dropped. During the 1920s, when life was free and easy, so was crime.

During the 1950s and 1960s, when the economy was excellent, crime rose again.
