From 1-7-1997 to now
Today is not only I’m Not Going To Take It Anymore Day but today’s my 26 anniversary of my second Traumatic Brain Injury (but I had had 3 brain injuries and a few concussions), but the one I kind of want to hold to say a big “Yeah, I’m just going to make a holiday to note”; but it was on this day back in January 7th at around 2 AM that I was hit by a attempted hit & run drunk driver but the cab driver ran her off the road. Right on! More power to the people! But I couldn’t really give them anything, because I was out for the count, in a coma, for almost 3 months. When I “woke up”, I could no longer talk. And the woman who hit me? Well, she was a pharmacy student!
And the “”I’m Not Going To Take It Anymore Day” when we as human beings fight back against the injustices inflicted upon us, to show that we cannot be controlled nor contained like wild animals. To show that we have our own lives and our own prerogatives.
“The rebellious history Of I’m Not Going To Take It Anymore Day
“Civilians and labor workers have all had their fair share of wrongdoings made upon them, and most of them get to the point that they start a rebellion against their higher ups. For Example, the Haitian Rebellion: On 22 August, 1791, the slaves of Saint Domingue rose in revolt and plunged the colony into civil war. The signal to begin the revolt was given by Dutty Boukman, a high priest of voodoo and leader of the Maroon slaves, during a religious ceremony at Bois Caïman, on the night of August 14th. Within the next ten days, slaves had taken control of the entire Northern Province in an unprecedented slave revolt. Whites kept control of only a few isolated, fortified camps.
“The slaves sought revenge on their masters through “pillage, rape, torture, mutilation, and death”. Because the plantation owners had long feared a revolt like this, they were well armed and prepared to defend themselves. Nonetheless, within weeks, the number of slaves who joined the revolt reached approximately 100,000. Within the next two months, as the violence escalated, the slaves killed 4,000 whites and burned or destroyed 180 sugar plantations and hundreds of coffee and indigo plantations. Now, back to modern times. We here in the modern era have had many protests
throughout the years, but none have been so ridiculous and varied is the ones in current years as we all have seen in some way or another.”
Well, I just like the day, I would like to offer you a cup of coffee or tea (or cocoa or even water!), and say “Yeah, this girl & her family just ain’t to give it up!” People like my mom, Sue Bourn, her husband/my dad, Martin Wool, my aunt Sam (make that Sandra Walker and her Amazing husband, John), my uncle Rob & his fantastic wife, all the way to my brother, Jake, and Marty’s 3 kids, Jo Anna Wool, Greg Wool & Lauren Wool, and the first wife of Marty, Sally Wool & her husband. Anyway, raise whatever you are drinking and toast my family and me!
