Kenneth: I’m from Willacoochee, GA. I moved up here when I was like ten years old with my mother. My mother passed in 2009. Me and my mother was very close. I’ve been going through some hard times since my mother passed in 2009. I’m struggling with a drug addiction. Right now I’m living with my daughter and eight grandchildren.
BW: Can you tell me about your mom?
Kenneth: Man, my mother… She taught me how to love and respect people. I come from a good background, all military uncles and brothers. She was the best mom. She respected everybody. If I was going through trials and tribulations, she was always there. Every time I’d go out the door she’d say, “Kenny, I love ya. Be careful, baby.” My mom knew I got stuck on some drugs but she knew my heart. I came up around a good family. I don’t understand how I live this life.
God say he would never put no more on you than you can bear so I go through these trials and tribulations and the struggle and it hurts. It really hurts. Cause you know you a good person. Deep down inside your heart, you a good person.
