"If my life was an album the title would be 'Cold Nights'. A lot of people don't understand the struggles. A lot of people from different races don't understand what we go through. I went through a lot of stuff in life. I remember cold nights and not having nothing to eat. I wasn't able to do things that I wanted to do, because it was a struggle. Everything's a lesson. " - Vashaun (center), Shawnee  "I look at life like hurdles. It's always going to be hurdles, but you gotta keep jumpin' them. You gotta keep going. Don't let nothing hold you back. You gotta go out here and get it. That's what I'm trying to do and I'm not going to let nobody stop me. You know what I'm sayin'? I've done the bad and I've done the good. I'm gonna do the good. I got two kids, now. I'm trying to be a good example, so that's all I do." - Larry (far right), Shawnee  J'Shaun (far left), Shawnee
