Some people feel they have to live up their name
First name. Family name.
For me the challenge is living up to my initials, JC.
It s a lot of work
I welcome the challenge
It’s just all those people with that “persecution thing” that gets me
Too many people looking to fulfill some misplaced
crucifixion obsession which has nothing to do with religion,
and everything to do with personal issues, your issues with me
According to your version of history
I should not exist…
But I do… Just Cause
