Never A Shortage Of Stupidity.

I hate 4th of July.  Or as I like to call it 4th of You Lie.  My ancestors who were slaves weren’t free in July 1776.  Still slaves, the slaves weren’t free until 1864.   Only the founding fathers dressed in powder wigs + effeminate silk stockings enjoyed the signing off of the so called independence (Ha)  .   With that said, what I can’t stand about the 4th are those fireworks the worst being the M-80’s.   If you don’t know what they are go look it up I don’t feel like explaining, but what I will tell you is that when you hear them go off it sounds like your in the middle of a war.  It’s a sound that you really don’t forget, but for some reason the idiot people love to shoot off within the city limits.  I guess the fact that lighting up the fireworks is ILLEGAL, UNSAFE, COULD CAUSE A FIRE isn’t what concerns some folks.   No, of course not , hey people just want to have their fun & who cares about all that right?  Next year I’ll try to be out of town.  Hopefully somewhere were there won’t be any stupid fireworks.   I don’t celebrate the 4th.  I celebrate June 19th also known as Juneteenth.  When the slaves were free it was actually on June 19th 1866 two years AFTER the emancipation proclamation.   Just to give you a little history.  Better start researching a quiet getaway next year.  But unfortunately ignorant people are everywhere.

Me: I grew up in an extremely abusive & disadvantaged family environment were both parents were really immature & their relationship messy! I was abducted by my Father at age 8 abused physically, mentally, degraded by his 2nd Wife, and I didn't see my Mother again until 4 years later, I had to risk my neck + my life to run off to seek help with the local police & this was way before there was any such laws on the books for child abuse. Think on that awhile. Had learning disabilities all throughout school by the time I graduated I learned nothing, was prepared for nothing out in the World. Think on that. Joined the United States Army right out of High School only reason I did join was that at the time there was an Army recruiter right on the High School campus & he took an interest in me. So I joined. I was really in over my head. But what else could I do? I lived with a single Mom who was emotionally unstable & I had ZERO support from anyone including the school staff + administrators. The military was hard & degrading to me as a woman but I got out with an honorable discharge. More about me: A series of dead end jobs, my mind was totally a mess after I got out of the Army, still had no support not even from the Veterans admin. My journey has been a total nightmare of: trying to find out about myself, learning about myself, how to live as an adult, all with no help. Now after long , and intensive filled journey I'm trying to get back on track with my life I want to go to school with the hope of one day attending University. I don't wish my journey on anyone. No one gave me guidance: as a child as a teen as a young adult I was all on my own! and it was real lonely , isolating, extremely frightening. Family? don't really have any. Now remember everyone I'm African American & I receive little to no respect I don't even warrant a speeding car that will slow down.
