I'm Coming Home...
« on: August 04, 2009, 01:56 AM NHFT »

It's not that I've met a lot of you but some of us have talked. I never planned on leaving Manchester last year but family issues forced me to return to Detroit. It's been a rough year for my family but there's nothing I can do to improve the situation. I leave now or stay here forever.

The goals of the FSP are not going to be met in my lifetime. I don't say that as a discouragement. This is the line in the sand. I'll die trying, likely by old age.

Once I got bored with Michigan in early August and decided Las Vegas was the best place to move to because I'd be able to go into any casino on a Sunday to catch the Lions' game. I've been all over the country for work or visiting. The only place that ever felt like home besides the Detroit area was in Texas.

Then I discovered the FSP. The idea became a home. NH comes second.

I'm taking the bus from Detroit to Manchester. It's a 24 hour trip starting at 7:20 pm on Sunday the 16th, I arrive on Monday night. I think I'm all set for a place to stay but there is a possibility I won't be able to pick up the keys until the next morning. I may need to post a request for a couch to crash on for a night and was hoping to get a head count for who could do that if I need it.

since the goal is "liberty in our lifetime" ... then i guess it cannot be accomplished after you are gone ... we will just have to try harder

what does texas have in common with detroit .... the blue light gang?

I tell myself the goals can't be met in my lifetime so that I will work harder.

In Midland, Texas when I walked down the street people smiled and said hi like they knew me. It reminded me of my neighborhood and gave me a feeling of being home. I got the same vibe in Manchester and that was without knowing any of the activists. I overheard three women in a restaurant talking about secession and knew I'd like it there.

You can't possibly be from Detroit them. Novi, perhaps?  ;D (Livonia, if you're actually from Wayne County)

No Kevin, you're right. I should have explained this, as it's only important to those from the D:

Disclaimer: If you're from Michigan it's insulting to those that live in Detroit to say you're from Detroit when you don't or never have actually lived there. I learned this at a young age. It's a respect thing; by saying you're from there you admit to having gone through what people in Detroit go through.

It's tough in Mount Clemens (Macomb County) where I grew up, but not Detroit tough. I'm lucky enough that people in my neighborhood know me at least on a first name basis and when I walk to the store we'll at least exchange pleasantries. It doesn't always turn out that way for people that live here and sometimes bad things happen to good people.

In Midland, Texas...

Ah... I was stationed at Goodfellow AFB, in San Angelo.

Used to fly out of Midland, to go visit my parents.
