Hood PTSD is an understanding and recognition that men, women and children raised in war-torn ghettos across the United States of America face the same harms, anxieties and mental disorders as our soldiers who serve in the military and go to war. I believe my mental disorder (Hood PTSD) was caused by numerous factors such as abusive parents,...SOMA ZAIDI

Certain things can be understood by certain people, but most things are likely to be misunderstood by most people. Kuangalia, I’m no athlete, actor, mwanasiasa, or any other type public figure, so I don’t have to be politically...SOMA ZAIDI
