“Being in the West is cool. It’s not what everybody makes it seem. It is a tougher experience, compared to people, who are on the outside, looking in. All they do is advertise the bad shit. People are just making it worse than it already is. It could be better. It needs to be a whole lot better.  Treat people the way you want to be treated. It’s not all about skin color. Just try to help somebody and it doesn’t necessarily have to be with money. You can just talk to someone and help lead them down a different path. Man, treat people the way you want them to treat your kids. That’s what it boils down to.   My life ain't no where near over. I done live a lot, so I don’t even think about me. It’s about bettering my situation for the next generation to come. That’s what it’s about. You've got to put values in your kids. That’s where it is. Half the stuff that we need to see, hasn’t been put into these kids. I was lucky to have some of the role models that helped me. These kids need role models.” - Squeak, Russell
