Why’s this happening in our life?’ [With] everything that was going on, there were protests and a lot of things they were seeing. [I told her] sometimes things need to change and when things change, sometimes it hurts a little. But it’ll always be for the good of everyone. Sometimes you have to live those moments and have to stay strong and grateful, because we have so much – we have our health, we are together, we have love,’ she revealed.
