“I’ve been in the West my whole life. I’m never gonna forget where I came from. I love the people here. We got all nationalities here and it’s family. You can walk into any store and still feel like it’s family. It’s a big family.  My favorite West End memory is when they took the truck from Dino’s food truck. I was thirteen. Someone grabbed the truck and pulled off with it. The doors and stuff was still open, so as he was driving, the doors were just open and juices were popping out. Everybody was coming to grab them! When he got to the alley, he pulled over, we were grabbing juices and everything. That was my biggest West End memory.  We’re always going to have problems, no matter what. There will always be obstacles in the way. Just stay strong because there’s still more out here. You gotta push forward. Be humble because there’s always a blessing coming next door.” - George (far left) pictured with LaQuetha & Dilemma, Russell
