THE DEFINITIVE RAP: Bridging Our Diverse Communities Interview with Mark Appel


There are few true heroes in our midst. The people who stick their necks out to help others, and who do it not for money or fame, but because they truly care to help those whom nobody cares about. Those are the unsung heroes. Here on the Definitive Rap we bring the truth to the forefront. We respect people of all faiths, and we believe in America, and Justice For All. Our guest today, Mark Appel, lives and breathes for peace and justice.
