We lived in apartments in the city.
I learned to be quiet at a very early age
so as not to disturb the neighbors.
All around me was the noise of the city.
It was background.
As a small child
with family from the deep South
I heard stories
that made me afraid.
Later I learned about diversity
It opened up my eyes
and made the world
a more interesting place.
