This can be simply stated as random moments of insanity. In the end, the really good person is the one who pays for the sins of both. When you have a weak minded person and a strong minded person, someone is bound to get hurt. Stacey is no exception to the rule. She put herself in a situation that could have been avoided if she would have just followed the path God had for her.

On this eposide of SWAG Radio, Yara Kaleemah will be chopping it up with Sunny Giovanni..
In southern Dallas, Texas, Sunny Giovanni, or "Gio" as she likes to be called, was born on the fifth day of June in 1989. Born to a mother who was a teacher and a graduate from Texas A&M University, you couldn't so much as watch a Disney movie if you hadn't read the book before hand. Gio has had a very strong history with literature, diversifying from poetry (winning placements in oratorical contests), to thriller short stories as a way to vent her frustrations.Sunny Giovanni is an advocate for gay and trans rights, and says: "You can't help who you are, and you damn sure can't help who you love. You should be true to who are, rather than to conform and live the ultimate lie, and live miserable until the day you die." Credited from the poem she penned "Titanium", modeled after her novel.
Gio is a mother of three children, the founder of Lucid Legends Publishing/ Photography, Kno Joke Entertainment, the host of "We Talk TOO Much Radio" on BlogTalk Radio, and blogs on Tumblr under the name "KnoJokeGio". She is a friend to many and prides herself on making a smile out of an extremely horrible day. "It doesn't matter if you're having a bad day... a smile could make everything else seem so small. Crack a joke when someone is hurt and see how fast they cheer up. Even at a random moment. If it makes no sense, see how fast they forget about everything else and wonder what's wrong with you, but end up smiling in the process. It works every time."
