Right on Sammi,

You can get mad at almost anything but it is a lot harder to get mad when
you sit down and talk things out. Sometimes people forget that talking is
an option. I looked on my times with the crews as a time to learn. They
know a lot of things that I don’t know. If I wasn’t open to learning, I
never would have found out. We can all learn from each other, sometimes
what we learn is not good but it does come in handy at some time in your
life. I have also worked with troubled girls. Try to work with someone
who has no idea where you are coming from and can’t relate to you. We
found that we had things in our past/background that we could relate to
each other on. It is up to all of us to find out what those commonalities

I know with the guys, we were all poor at one time in our life or were
still poor. That isn’t much but it is a common bond to start the
communication. How many ways can you cook beans? You would be surprised
how original some folks can be!! That might sound funny but at least the
conversation was started and we could go from there.
