Homework

As for others, “it is necessary work” Professor Mr. Smith had said.

 

“Somebody has to teach the children,” Mr. Spirer had said, “these farmers depend on me.” Captain Landguill had said. Their purposes and jobs seem completely honorable to me. They didn’t feel they were better than anyone else, they were not working just make a lot of money. I read the papers everyday, the front pages were full of greedy, self-important, hostile people, the back roads are another country.

 

In April of that year 1968, several rights leader, Martine Luther King, Julier was murdered. In June, Robert Canady was murdered as a compaign for president. Several American cities exploded in riots and flames. I felt so sad for the two deadmen and for the country they had done so much to change for the better. I might have thought the country was going in same, if I had not been on the road. I had eyes and ears, I kept meeting people who made me sure about the future.

 

In July I met Pat Baker, a young white woman in Reno, Nevada. The night Martin Luther King was killed, Pat Baker sat up late. I have to do something about this, she thought. One her way to work, she had often passed a big empty spaces in black commnity. She wondered why the city had not made a park in the empty spaces. Now she went to see the man who represent her commnity on the City Council. He told her there was no money to build a park, explain how difficulty would be to raise the money. Pat Baker dicided she could not wait, she went to talk with people in the black commnity, she went to garden supplier companies and cement companies and builders and the heads of local building unions. Soon, her idea became everybody’s idea. At 7:30 one Friday morning, a crow began together at the empty space in Reno Nevada.
