Re: “One nation under guns

When a woman in a wheelchair is badmouthed by some youths, saying, "make up your mind which way you are going to go" and then walking away not even caring how it effects the person, it's sad. This happened to me in Walmart. I am not necessarily aggressive but I took offense and said loudly, "I know you are not talking to me." The reaction, laughter. It's especially heinous at Christmas time. Where I live crime is happening all around me. Two blocks up the street, three blocks over, shootings, rapes, killing of a homeless man trying to make enough money to probably get drunk...the fabric that used to hold this country together is unraveling and it started in 1960 with busing and government trying to make people who go to work and make their own money and now we got to do what the government tells us to do. I think it's time to watch, hey what's that sound, everybody look around. I want a gun and cannot afford one. So I have a very sharp knife I carry in my wheelchair pocket in the back. I am serious. I am not scared nor do I provoke but if someone were to try something with me, this East Durham raised Angier Avenue used to live girl will show them a thing about a thing or two. It's just so sad and crazy and insane. And a writer whose name escapes me now wrote a book in 1970 revealing the very thing that is happening now. He said, "when the white young people start mimicking the young black people by having babies and going on welfare and not working and not caring then the fabric of this once great nation will unravel and there will be shootings in the streets and worse." I wish I could remember his name but I have never forgotten what he wrote. It's true, it's coming true and it's going to get a whole lot worse before it gets better. I blame the Courts and the revolving door it has become. I hang my head in shame for America.
