Topic Tuesday for They Called Me Number One

On this weeks Topic Tuesday Meredith picks a quote from page 105 of They Called Me Number One: Secrets and Survival at an Indian Residential School by Bev Sellars.

“Our summer holidays were full. We roamed the mountainsides looking for berries to eat. We played baseball with a sock wrapped around a rock and a two-by-four for a bat. We lay in the grass watching the clouds go by and discussed what object each cloud resembled. We were free – free to live life without constantly worrying about being punished. Free to ram the countryside without worrying about staying in boundaries. Free to talk to our brothers, sisters, parents, cousins, aunts, uncles, grandparents, and anyone we damn well felt like. Free to relish the feeling of security that having our family around us brings.”
