As the people made their way through the hot 1976 summer sun a little boy walked up to the last lady getting off the bus her name was Ms. Margret Jackson and he asked her "Ma'am do you have 5 cent you can spare"? She replied. "No son I don't, what do you need 5 cent for"? He said. "I have to go to the store to get my mama some corn meal for her supper tonight". As Ms. Jackson was walking home she thought to herself The life of the People was very tough and it's more than gangbanging, robbing, killing,disrespcting women and so on. We as the people have to stand up in what we believe in and take back what was once ours and that's The Life Of the People.
