Army brat in a critical household
My heart full of anger
Alone and lonely
Conservative college student, trapped again
Rebel by school’s end
Discovering new worlds
Migrant farm laborer
From Florida to Washington State
Seeing racism up close
Ready to make a difference.
Married Al and had two beautiful babies
– was unprepared and overwhelmed,
divorce and chronic fatigue left me
feeling empty, alone, beaten down.
Enter Jean, Elaine and Pam
Learned to parent myself and my children
Mentors’ teachings will last forever
I am whole.
In her music I find Joy
In her arms I find Home
In her mission I find Purpose.
