I Can Just Spit!

I swear, this town is a horrible place to live.  When we moved back to the east coast from CA we chose to live in CT.  We NEVER realized what a closed-minded, anti-semitic, mayonnaise town we moved to when we first got here.  We have since learned that if you're not from here; if your family did not grow up here; if you don't belong to the same place of worship as everyone else here...you're an outsider, an alien and a threat to their all-white Stepford community.  And the Stepford people have given the administrators in the school district and the police force all the power they need to make outsiders unwelcome.  I really don't want to live here any more.  Especially after what happened to my children this week.  I want to go HOME!

So please understand that my journal page is my way of getting some of these feelings out before they fester inside of me.  If the phrase KISS MY ASS offends you, so sorry.  In the meantime, DH will be looking for a job back in CA.  I need to save my kids from this dreadful place before someone kills them!

That stinks. We moved to a very conservative area in Pa. when I was a kid. It was kind of the same feel, but in a way, not so bad because it was such a large farming community that you weren't right on top of each other. We moved to our current house in Maine in Dec of last year. The adjustment hasn't been so bad, but I still feel like an outsider. SIGH. I hope you find some peace.

PS- you journal page is wonderful -what a great outlet!

This sounds just horrid. I have lived in a place like this once (Indianapolis). I skedaddled back to the city that I loved pretty quickly....
