Rapper B.G joins The Streets Don't Love You Back Team, he has a lot of regrets! BG said...“Stay in school…Listen to your mama and your daddy. Don’t make the same mistakes that I did,” B.G. explained. “Cause it’s a lot of things I wish I could take back and wish I could do different, but I ain’t able to do that. I put myself in this situation. There’s a lot of kids that look up to me and a lot of fans that I let down, but I ain’t perfect. I make mistakes and it ain’t worth it at the end of the day.” B.G. was sentenced to 14 years behind bars for possession of a firearm and conspiring to obstruct justice.

I had the opportunity to sit with a homeless lady, talk and I bought her lunch. We also gave her some money. She was so thrilled that she insisted on giving me a special coin from her coin collection. I watched as she unwrapped bag after bag to get to them. She handed it to me and said this one is 2008 and has blue sparkles on it when you hold it in the light. It was a penny and it had some blueish metallic coloring on it. As I drove home meditating on the experience it hit me....The penny said.... "IN GOD WE TRUST"...... A WOW EXPERIENCE!
