Re: Attn: Patricia McGurk Hearst Himmler:PROCESS/SHIPMENT...
I have lived a "half-life" in the United States as a real American citizen with no real human rights visible or evident to many observers. I am not sure I was ever a free person in the United States - probably not, even though I survived the public lies that I ever was a slave. We do not have slavery in the United States legally as it is banned by the American Constitution. Quality of life can be ruined, however, by criminals very easily, and when overlooked by the state itself - slavery can appear legal, although it never is in the United States with the Constitution expressed, unamended as there is a specific process that is lengthy, legal and involved the will of teh American people expressed through direct partication as "voters", at least, to amend it, along with Congress and the whole governmetn approving any amendments -- as I recall.
Executive Amendments do not exist within this democratic format. I am not commenting on recent changes, and I only state the rules from when I was a child - rules that never changed for me.
I lived for many years in the northern Virginia area, including Arlington and Alexandria, as well as Northwest Washington, D.C., the nation's capital. Also in childhood only, Colorado Springs briefly, El Paso, Texas off and on in for several years, Ft. Leavenworth, Kansas very briefly on the military post there only (not the jail area in the city), northern California and southern, as well, when I travelled with my adult music fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts in Jazz/Folk/Ethic Music as an Individual Performer "Fellow".
I consider myself an accomplished writer of social justice essays, writing fiction and poetry about the serious issues that impact children and women. My focus in the past has included the complex abusive relationships that sometimes are so abusive that they result in violence eruptions in the "cycle of violence" that has, too often, emotional familiarity within the intimate family".
I will eventually continue to write with a spiritual focus that transcends religious and social barriers, although I do not plan to write much about the United States. I wish to refrain from criticism of the political United States that is not supportive of me from the police level, too often allowing brutal crimes against me. I plan to write little in this country, and publish abroad once I am settled!
I continue to support law and order in the country, and hope things turn out well for the United States.
