A Letter To JG

Dear JG

How are you doing my brotha? I mean, like how are you feeling, what are your thoughts, what do you think about in idle time? I’m interested in how you feel personally because that’s all that matters to me and several others. I could give a damn about a football and your ability within this game because my brother, my friend, you are much more important than any game.

I’ve been reading your story and I admit it is heartbreaking and I’m not going to be like a lot of people and tell you I understand how you felt back when all this started in Middle School, hell mentally before that. I do believe in demons and I do understand the impact of trauma and how that can have an affect on ones mind. I grew up in a small but reckless city called Saginaw. MI and have seen my fair share of crazy shit. You know, dead bodies on corners, murderers, friends I’ll never see again from death and behind bars. All that shit can break the strongest of us.

The thing is JG, you matter to a ton of people, maybe you know them but there are some you don’t know, but we are out here and in support of you!! Yes you, JG the young black King who will change the lives of thousands. We care about you because we love you and want the best for you the person. And although it is almost impossible to tune out things these days, please try to tune out football and those who only seem to care about you when you are participating for their favorite sports team. I’m all for taking care of self because at the end of the day, you have to make sure that you are fine.

You see, even with your current problems I see a long line of success waiting for you. You have already beat the odds JG, and on the road to building up yourself please remember that this is all part of the process. The only timeline that you are on is the one God has destined for you. And I know there is pain in all of this, I know there is, but you have a special story and one that you are not the only one to go through so think about that going forward. You have the ability to help more people than you ever imagined but it starts with you.

More blessings you JG and get well ASAP. We need you happy and healthy.
