program possible: Daycare assistance through Texas Workforce, Medicaid, Free/Low Cost Meals at school. It took over 6-months to get some programs in place, and you have to keep applying/proving yourself worthy. I am so thankful for a great job with a wonderful boss who understands and has supported me through over 2-years of struggles with sick little kids, State bureacracy, court appointments, and a nutty absent parent (the kids' mom is my own lost daughter).

I researched briefly on-line seeking pictures or articles about one point in time fall-winter 1956-57, Oklahoma City, an attempted sit-in at either Katz or Woolworth’s drug stores. All I could find was lots of pics and articles about the 1st successful sit-in, which was definitely at Katz in OKC, led by Clara Luper. I would be grateful to anyone who can find information about the earlier attempted sit-ins in OKC. It is my history too. At the age of 6, my grandmother dressed me up to look like her friends, in a suit with hat, gloves and pearl necklace. We drove into downtown OKC, and took up all the seats at the drug store lunch counter……. On the way into the drug store, I saw more peace and dignity on the faces of the brave black women outside than I did on the hostile faces of the old white women sitting with me at the lunch counter. My grandmother was an amazing woman, but that episode backfired in her face. It did NOT teach me to hate anyone, but I have never worn a pearl necklace since that time.
