feel sad, missing the really nice times.
when you held me on top of your chest
my face against your neck.. the feeling of safety 
warm and familiar.. feeling your pulse 
the way our room was 
the bomb meals we would cook together, I swear each meal got better
don’t feel as comfortable around anyone else these days

you were the closest person to me for awhile.
so this is weird and makes me tear up sometimes.
but we must move on.. nothin’s forever.

I really miss you.
Things really did have to change.. Things in my life.
Found the little stone with the dragonfly on it I bought in Jasper.
This is what probably set me off..
Remembering the reason I got it for you, how it’s supposed to be healing change.
How my efforts were never good enough to help you.
How you just can’t help people sometimes.
Hurts to the core.

I wish so bad things turned out differently.
You were so sweet to me.
Never has anyone shown me what you have.

But when things got bad.. I just can’t be in those situations anymore.

Navajo Kindergartner Sent Home from School, Ordered to Cut His Hair
On Monday, a 5-year-old Native American boy was sent home on his first day of school and ordered to cut his hair short because it allegedly violated district policy, the boy’s mother said.The child, Malachi Wilson, an enrolled citizen of the Navajo Nation, had been looking forward to his first day of kindergarten at F.J. Young Elementary in Seminole, Texas.

I AM SEETHING.  FUCK THE CONTINUATION OF ASSIMILATION EFFORTS AND ASSAULT ON THE PHYSICAL, MENTAL, EMOTIONAL, AND SPIRITUAL WELL-BEING OF NATIVE AND INDIGENOUS PEOPLE. 
THIS COUNTRY HAS NO SHAME
NO CONSCIENCE
NO HISTORICAL BEARING
HAS AMERICA FORGOTTEN SO SOON?
THE TRAGEDY OF NATIVE CHILDREN FORCED TO LEAVE THEIR HOMES FOR RACIST BOARDING SCHOOLS?
WHERE THEIR HAIR WAS CUT? WHERE CHILDREN WERE BEATEN FOR SPEAKING THEIR MOTHER TONGUES? WHERE THEY WERE ABUSED AND FORCED TO HIDE THEIR CULTURE AS A WAY TO SURVIVE? 
NEVER FORGET. NEVER.
