“There is a lot of love in the word NO.
I love you, but you need to get a job.
I love you, but if you are going to do the crime, you are going to have to do the time (the other person you hurt had family that loved them too. You don’t get a pass on responsibility simply because you are my brother or cousin).
I love you, but if you are going to have these kids, you are going to have to take care of them.
I love you, but you cannot call yourself a community leader and not produce any community results.
Love comes with responsibility too.”
