This Crazy Religion… I

I was raised in a very Rural Town called Rawlins, Wyoming. It is a close minded, willfully ignorant, racist as hell town. Since I was adopted as a child, I was a Korean girl among racists people in my School and Town. Growing up was hard in that situation, I was not accepted for who I was or what I looked like; I always wondered why my Mother adopted two girls from Korea…when she herself is a very racist person. She has no problem throwing out the N word, or stating that White people are superior to Brown people, and since we were girls…that was another negative against us…my mother birthed six boys and she did not like girls at all and blamed them for most things…even rape and my mother did not care the victim was only nine years old at the time. She said she deserved it and had it coming…..

As if this wasn’t horrible enough to endure…My mother was a Religious fanatic that used Gods name to get her way…for some reason God only spoke to Her. The one thing that I will never forgive my mother for is when she took my Sister, who is my blood sister and was adopted with me…at 15 years old to the Philippines to marry her off to some guy and leave her there in a third world country to have a baby. My Sister was so smart and kind, and my mother has always been extremally jealous of our relationship. So she cut it off in her own crazy cruel way. She changed my sisters life in a instant, my sister was good in School and could of got Scholarships for College…my mom said that was not the will of the Lord.

Their Voices speaking truth to power, her stories and dreams, and nightmares that she needs/must express.  “A strong woman stands up for herself.
