cultures in generall

culture in general and tradition is somthng people should hold on to and let go at the same time. Getting stuck in the past isn't a good thing but getting to caught up in the future isn't either. Everyone really needs to find the equall median of the past and the present and mix it together so it is in harmony.

me and connors culture
