Let's Talk about 2018Duration: 01h01min | 09/04/2019
*Trigger Warning* This letter is about Malcolm's mom and I discussing the struggles we went through in 2018...there are very sensitive topics touched about (loss of family, gun violence, loss of a pet, etc.) So we want to make sure we are upfront about that. We take a look at the many struggles we endured in 2018. It was a rough one. But we came out stronger as a family in the end.
