Message to Joseph Pierre:
Hello, Joseph, thank you for letting me participate in this wonderful cause. I keep hoping this world would just see people as people, not black, white, red, or yellow. I have a story to tell you: I grew up in Detroit and worked at Henry Ford Hospital for 25 years. Many different peoples worked there and it was wonderful. Yes, there were problems at times but I loved it. My husband decided to move up north and I had gotten a job in a nearby hospital, I don’t want to say where for obvious reasons. Things were so different there. They did have peoples from other countries but there were no African-American people, and I never felt so out of place! Mind you, I’m Polish American but the lack of these wonderful people made me feel so out-of-place. I truly understand how African American people feel when they’re in this situation. It would be such a blessing to have us all just be people. From not hiring certain races to mistreating them, I want it to stop.
Please join us in this event to win great books and to get to know great authors! 🙂
