    I love this. I love what you talk about. I think this is so needed for everyone. I think this is a major stepping stone for our Coming Together as a people. It pains me to see where we are at this time but with the right Education, the right Conversation, the right mind creation, “We Shall Overcome.” I Thank You.

    If something happens to this man you know the CIA killed him. PROTECT ACHO AT ALL COSTS!!

    Right on! Healing and Enlightenment are first a Personal experience, then a Community Conversation, adding to the collective Human experiences.
    Giving people the space to share their conscience experiences with living their unique story, needs to be the norm, as traumatic as it is, we owe it to those who have suffered.

    Great interview. Jimmy has a tendency to interrupt his guests and talk over them a bit sometimes, but this time around he didn’t not interrupt Emmanuel nor talked over him. Real’ cool 💜
