The Summer of Regret
It was the summer of '63, I was seventeen and headed to Washington, D.C. with the Future Leaders of America.
"Carla Jo," Mrs. Perkins interrupted my thoughts. "Are you excited to be going to Washington?"
"Oh, yes m'am," I beamed with enthusiasm.
After twelve long hours the bus came to a halt in front of Union Station. Why did we stop?
The driver instructed everyone to get off the bus. We did as we were told and herded into Union Station.
I couldn't see Mrs.Perkins. All I saw was armed guards and police dogs.
"Get down!" I screamed.
