One day my grandmother called me into her bedroom. She was sitting up in her bed watching TV. She said "Kai, go over and look out of that window and tell me what you see?". We lived on the 9th floor of the Washington projects in East Harlem. I said: "Grandma, I see cars and buildings and people and my friends playing basketball. Can I go downstairs?" She said: "Kai, look at me. From now and for the rest of your life, whenever you look out of a window; you need to see a bunch of stuff that you do not own and you need to have a problem with that." I was 8 yrs old.
