"Some things you can’t change, but you can change yourself… You can clean yourself up… and once you start doing that, then you’ll be finding out that life is alright… That’s what the young people are looking for. They want something. Every young person ought to be proud of who they are… because they’re somebody. They’re somebody special..."
