Interviewer: Which labels would you use to describe yourself back then and now? Aaron: Young. Inexperienced. (laughs) Very enthused, you know, about the struggle. Basically, young and enthused. Full of fire and love for my people. That’s how I would describe it back then. Interviewer: Now? Aaron: I’m old. (laughs) I still love the people but I don’t think I got that same fire, you know what I’m saying?
