I really enjoyed this John. I felt myself feeling a little jealous/envious of you leaving us here in this hell hole (lol). I too want to leave, but where do you go and live in peace when you're Black, American, and a woman? I'll travel to escape this hell hole as I always have and dream of the day there is a place I can live in peace.
There is something about aging when you're a creative that's really nice. You get to see the world the way it really is. Racism ruined your move. Had racist voted for a different candidate, we wouldn't be telling different stories today. But here we are, on fire, with no water, and a bunker boy who tosses gasoline on it like the sociopath he is, watching from behind the wall, like the good chicken he is.
This too shall pass.
Guess you gotta stay here and help me fix this dumpster fire with me (lol). I'm glad you're on the team. I'm looking forward to freedom fighting with ya!
