Growing up as a little girl I didn’t understand why there were no sidewalks to walk to school, like the neighborhood 3 blocks away. I also didn’t understand why adults were so fearful to acknowledge the obvious factors (race and income) that were the reason for the difference. Something I understood at 5 even though I didn’t have the words for it. And just like that, not having access to the same quality of life resources made it unsafe for me to walk to school. It also meant other families in my community didn't have safe routes to schools or clean green spaces. My parents didn't make the same wage as their counterparts, leaving one of them uninsured. Confederate flags decorated highways and public spaces. Essentially a neighborhood, a city that should have felt like "home" didn't.
