This story is about the lives of 4 girl friends from the hood.
|Last night at bed time:
Kim hears sirens at home; Janet hears helicopters in mom's apt; Toya hears arguing in the homie's spot; Sandra hears silence.
Together in spirit the girls pray: Lord i lay me down to sleep I pray the Lord my soul to keep If i should die before i wake I pray the Lord my soul to take. Amen.
