i am back...

well i am back in d.c...and it felt like i didn't skip a soon as i got back i hit the road it felt like..
in a sence it was good...i was tired but i did it..getting adjusted to going from 60 degrees to 20 degrees
in less than 4 hours is pretty crazy..but being gone kind of weakened me a was miserable to get
out and ride for me...but i sucked it up and took like a champ..i missed my riding everyday through this place..
know what i would be doing back home and what i am doing up here,i'll take here anyday..but what i went
through down there has helped me for what i am going through here..being a rookie is hard work,and trying
to earn your place here with some of the best courier's...i fell blessed everday for being i am
back to reading bike porn and chillin in my apt..tonight is bike repair and getting my gear straight for the week..
well i 'll post with some pics soon...i am still brain storming my attack...t-court

never forget

well i am here in nola..and man i am homesick at aint the same up in here..i want to leave here feeling like a
suvivor,not a victim..its not even fun makes me know i haven't been here for over a year
and now i know the reasons why..i am better off where i am at...i made a promise to myself to never take things for
granted,and now i know that it is true..i might not have much where i am at now,but i still have my thoughts and memories..
i might not have this and that,i mean my cloths are still donated,i bought my bike with FEMA money and i ride the shit out of that thng everyday..i can only speak for myselfand me only....but this place is fucked..ON THE ROAD TO RECOVERY...
fuck that..its not safe it aint right..everything is done here..people can't rebuild..and everybody has some fucked up reason why they,didn't have insurance,man the list goes on and on..i live in the nations capitol and its like its old news..
i tell people there what is going on and it doesn't even register to them that people in their own country are suffering..its
all about wht you have and what you do there..people hear don't have nothing..and people wonder why people here are pissed..
there are no resources,you get sick or hurt,where are the doctors for the working man,no more hospitols,..crime is still is a dark place..and i think everybody has forgotten and just don't care about NOLA..its ashama tornado
touched down yesterday and it is up to us to pick up the pieces,people where still in there FEMA trailers..and the houses that they where trying to rebuild are now flattened..did you really hear about that?all you hear about is the negative..crime!its way more fucked up than that..all the schools in the lower income hoods are still closed..but the private scools are can count more abandon buildings than occupied...of course the rich uptown its bizness as usual..everubody is at fault..if you where able to come back and pick up the pieces it was easy for them...but of course if you lived in the hood you where forgotten..
i feel the people that have clout here and the people that didn't lose anything forget about the reality of this..i am pissed,and at this point even if everyone promises to do there part,i would have to say they are liars..i am over when you want to complain about the way things are about politics,war,poverty,or whatever,just realize,you have a third world country in your own backyard..i have to live with this reality everyday,so when you see me just realize who i am and what i am about..
i have a reason to be pissed..we were left behind,we got out,and this is what i come back to...but really my opinion is just 1 in a million...but i survived...and i need to feel whole again...
