Transcripts of full meetings of the council.

I raised her at Richard Allen project when her mother passed. I raised her up when she was a little child trying to strut across the street. I had to hold her back because I said, Wait for the light to change. She want to jump and run. I had to hold her back. But look at her now. And I want we all to respect her and do what she ask us to do. We want to stay on the right track and do the right thing.

When you go to bed at night, don't you say your prayers before you go to bed? Don't you thank the Lord for waking you up and carrying through a day? See, I know all about it. I was raised up to say my prayers every night when I was four or five years old. My mother taught me say your prayers, and I've been doing it ever since. And I want everybody to know, all of you, don't forget to say your prayers. How do you think the Lord brought you up this far? And some of you may be 75, 65, 85, but you're still not grown if you cannot thank the Lord for blessing you right now.

Thank you.
