Just don't ever forget one greatful thing about South Boston YOU can take one "o" out of good for luck when you beleive for one solitary second of your sick mind and forget this message > God Does Not Sleep.......................

To all those who kill and harm another life.... Go home To HELL where you need to be where your master awaits you................ May God Bless South Boston Land Where my Grand- Father died and land of Love if you let it be.... Bless yourself in the waters and be glad you are born free......... a native american speaking on behalf of Southie and all those from 1974 who knew love and lost it on a two way street..... God Bless!

I was in Bell's yesterday and met this girl's sister. We started talking and I told her my mom was murdered in Andrew Sq . inside her home. What a crazy conversation. What ever happened to trading stupid stories about your dog or kids? We have come to this in our hometown? Pretty sad.......

Yeah, u mad.

Next time you're stuck in traffic commuting from your suburban hell, think of me walking care free to work every morning. Don't worry about me, or southie, you're just not that important to us.
