I am not going front ...when Travis first told me he wanted to go to @themarathonclothing store I said "No...that's not happening." In my mind, it was way too soon, we had never been to Cali before, not to mention the west coast period and I just didn't know what to expect.
After a couple of days, Travis talked me into it and I'm so grateful that he did! As soon as we got off the plane, we picked up our rental car and headed right over. When we initially approached the store/ memorial, reality hit me... I had a real moment of sadness...like damn we lost a GREAT ONE, you know? I couldn't tell you how many candles were out there...so many that huge letters were formed "TMC" (The Marathon Company) the drawings, the bandanas. That sadness was short lived, I was then overcome by the feeling of LOVE in the air. I know it sounds corny, but I'm telling you...it was thick. So many different people were out their...so many people showing their admiration, showing their respect, showing their LOVE!
That's when it dawned I'm me...Slauson Ave reminded me of Ave D on the Lower Ear Side. Their neighborhood wasn't much different from the one I grew up in in NYC, only difference from what I noticed were the accents, they have really good weather and amazing dollar taco trucks! I say that to say, no matter where you come from, no matter what you've been through or what your going through, LOVE...it unites us, it comforts us and it really does conquer ALL. The LOVE that my husband and I felt and that my children felt...was Tremendous. Although the store is physically closed for now that LOVE was so Tremendous that we went to @themarathonclothing store twice in our 5 day visit and we will be making our purchase here shortly! With that being said thanks for the LOVE L.A.! @themarathonclothing #thanksforthelove #nipseyhustle #loveisreal @blendeddesigns
