Embarrassed Gon 2 soon

Sad news for the Street dance community a young dancer by the name of Duran Gordon was gunned down early this morning good Friday just a block away from his home in the Bronx after returning from doing some street shows in midtown Manhattan.
Duran was the son of a legendary Street dancer nick named Mr. Nice who helped pioneer the street dance movement in Midtown Manhattan. Mr. Nice was part of my old group in the late 80's early 90's his family is my extended family I was the best man at his wedding, watched his kids grow up from diapers this is a sad day for us all please say a prayer for this young life taken to soon.

God bless,
Julio "Klown" Santiago

Most of us entertain and if it goes well we think about ourselves and how cool it is people like us doing stuff, then maybe a bit later we might think about the laughter we generate generally and how cool that is and how cool we are for generating it.
And we lose track of the fact that it's simply survival.
I'm sorry this guy died.
You and your crew remind some that it takes some indefinable muscle to take the shit you're dealt and get stronger.
This guys pointless waste can't obscure the fact that he danced.
I'm sorry he got laid waste. But you know a good show is as close as you can get to God, even if the whole God thing's a joke.So maybe he knew more than most and maybe it's OK.
He danced then left.
and life's the same shit sandwidge it's always been, but you get stronger...

I don't make a lot of sense but I mean well.
