erff! another painful monday! >.< Thought I could make it thru a day at work - - had to go home - I wish my endo pain would stop..oh well.
I've been watching several shows lately about ML King and the civil rights struggle (as this is African American history month) .. perhaps I'm just weird - but ever since I was young, (especially after watching that tv drama roots by Alex Haley as when I was in school) .. I wonder how would I have behaved if I lived in that time? Would I be one of the few who dared to speak against the bigotry? Would I be like the mainstream and find no problem with "white only" bathrooms? ...
My Grandfather was beaten up by the KKK in Detroit (ahh they are so broad minded ..the KKK - they didn't just hate Blacks, they hated a plethora of folk - so I guess swarthy Greek immigrants fit in their group folks to hate).. My Mom recalls being unable to go to Belle Isle (it was an amusement park in Anaheim, Ontario - you would could take a boat to get there.. a really fun thing) with her school pals because one of them was "mixed".
^o^ because it was raining, Leigh brought the dogs home.. I think I will cuddle up with my inu-chans.. wan wan!
