The Turning Point
You told me a few minutes ago that you had kids have different fathers. What happened? Well, I was years-old when I got pregnant with my oldest daughter. Her father had to go to the South because he was involved in guns violence. So, they were looking to kill him. That is why he had to move from Trenton to the South.
He asked me to go with him but my parents did not allow me to go. That must have been tough for your, right? Yes, it was. I loved him a lot and because of my parents she the daughter grew up without him.
She is going to see him next month. What about the father of the twins? He is around.
We are not together but he supports them. That is why you are raising your kids alone. I feel that is a hard job for a single woman. I do not have kids but I have a few nephews. It is not easy for me at all but I have to do it. I can tell that the journey has not been easy for you. It is hard being a single mother, living in Trenton, and being a minority. Yes, there is too much crime and violence here. That is why I want to move out to this town.
You must be very careful with you son. It is very easy for a young African- American male to get involve in crime, violence, and drugs. You must look for alternative programs that can help him stay away from bad influence.
And it is very important the male figure in the live of a kid.
My dad and his 4 uncles would not let him go that road. And his dad would not allow him to end up like that. My brothers are very hard with him. They are straightforward. Act III: The Lost C That is why family is very important. I was rise by my grandparents. They help me to become the person I am today. I went to school because of them and I go into college because of them.
I do not known what my life would be like if I did not have them. I see that you have a tattoo on your right hand. What does it means?
Oh, it is a tattoo that I have in memory of my grandmother. She died almost 2 years ago. Patient began to cry. What happen to her? She died of pancreatic cancer.
Oh, I am so sorry to hear that. It must be tough for you, right? Yes, because she was my every. She raised my cousins and me. We used to do sleep overs at her house. I miss her dearly. Now, my mom and dad are sick and I do not what to do. It is had to lose someone you love. I can tell by my own experience that it is hard. My mom died 4 years ago and I still miss her. I have cried a lot and every single day of my life I love her even more.
Tell me more about your grandmother. She was the anchor of the family. All of my cousins and I used to go to her house and sleep over. She was wonderful—the best grandma ever. What are you afraid of? Now, my mom is sick and my bad as well. She takes a lot of medications. Now, she is doing what my grandma used to do. That is so beautiful that your nephews can have a moment with their grandmother.
Those memories would stay with them forever.
Yes, but she is sick. Tell me; are you afraid that she might die soon? Yes, I am worry that she would die soon because she takes a lot of medications and I know that she is not ok.
What would happen if she dies? I do not know. My nephews also gather at my house and I think it would be my job to become the anchor of my family. Are you prepared to be that person in your family? I have to because there is no one else. I need to be the one who supports the family.
I need to be the strong one. I need to stop smoking because I need to be there for them. I need to be strong… C I know that you would be strong and would overcome anything.
It is hard to lose someone you love—specially a parent or grandparent. I cannot imagine what would be like if I lose my grandma. So, are you willing to become the anchor of your family? Yes, and I know it would not be easy. It would be hard because everyone in my family sees me as we saw our grandma. Oh, I can see what you mean now. I bit is a tough one for you that is why you must get better and do things the right way. Yes, I have to stop smoking.
I do not want to get any disease. I do not want to me sick. May I pray for you? Yes, you can pray for me. Section IV: I also did not expect her to be so open and willing to share her story.
Also, themes of sadness, loneliness, lost dreams and hopelessness came through early on in our conversation. I confess that the visit moved me into tiers due to the suffering and experience of this woman.
I noticed that we have similar experience in terms of how we interact with our family network. For me, I witness that her life is full of suffering and tragedy. She lost the person she loves the most—her grandmother. I really was holding myself together in order to not cry in front of her but I cannot hold it for to long. I cried. I wanted to do more then just being there for her. I felt like was not doing enough for her. The hardest part was when she told me about how she would manager her future know that her mom is very sick and her dad.
She did not saw it clear. The best part was when she said thank you for being there with her. About The Turning Point A compelling vision of a new reality, a reconciliation of science and the human spirit for a future that will work The dynamics underlying the major problems of our time—cancer, crime, pollution, nuclear power, inflation, the energy shortage—are all the same.
