The Town with self-confidence-A story for Uncle Al’s Library

 

I felt the hard rain dripping down my face while I was waiting for the bus after I got out of school.

 

It was a night to just relax – but I had too much on my mind

When I got home- I was exhausted and wet

 

The next morning I woke up and the sun shone outside and then I noticed everyone had a wide smile like a cut watermelon

 

The Tough House

 

“I want the community in general to wear their rights (laminated “Know Your Rights” cards) on their chest. I want mothers, fathers, grandfathers, grandmothers, uncles, nephews, nieces, and children. I don’t want anyone left out!”

Note: The following story I’ve written is not aimed as a direct attack on ANY specific race, whatsoever. It is people’s (including my own) experience, reflection, and especially survival from a word/weapon. Historically, it has destroyed human beings.
