Heather Fackelman May 17, 2007 Honors US II pd. 1 June 29, 1964 It’s finally summer. Dad’s still preaching; he had me memorize another verse today. We’re marching soon to fight for our rights again. I’m starting to lose my patience. I know it’s important to be peaceful. I know it’s the safest way, and dad says it’ll be effective, but all I’ve seen so far are beatings. I see my friends being hosed down and attacked by dogs because of their skin color. Today, a busload of people came to sign us up to vote. We had a barbeque and got to meet all the people we’d be working with. I met a kid named Michael. He seemed nice enough. Crazy though. He’d never heard of our music. I don’t understand how he’s been living without it. Luckily, I introduced him to it. I’m a little nervous about marching. It’ll be my first time. I guess if it helps to make a difference, it’s worth it. Hopefully we’ll be able to sign up without trouble, and we can be heard. I guess we’ll have to see. August 12, 1965
