Description: Today is June 19th, Juneteenth's what they say and for my family, it's a very special day.
But sometimes the hood feels scary when we're walking around. I wish I could stay home where it's safe and sound. Where the dogs aren't BARKING, and the cars aren't HONKING, and the streetlights aren't FLICKERING.
But when Big Bro tells me it will all be okay, I know the noises can't hurt me and ruin my day.
