The weather was hot and sunny and it was perfect for Long Beach. It reminded… Continue
Yesterday I was invited to an event by a good friend of mine, David Leonard at Martin Luther King Park. He's been telling me to hit this event up every Wednesday, but I've been flaking out on him but I had good reasons(excuses)! I think... Anyways, I was glad I went to the event, because it reminded me that everywhere in Long Beach, people are trying to share and bring the diversity of this city together. There were different ages, races, and people from all kinds of backgrounds that… Continue
