3: There is this new thing called electricity and it makes our house bright in the night. also i don't have to worry about forgetting to blow the candle out at night because, get this, you can control it with a switch, up for on and down for off. Mama says that the electricity is better than a candle or a fire, and that it's easier too. Papa bought the family a new horseless carriage or automobile, Papa says it's for special use only because when we use it we need to pay for gas. Sister, brother and i are going to put out money together and buy a new radio so we will have something to listen to and enjoy ourselves.
5: the government just banned alcohol by rule of the the 18th amendment, which prohibits the manufacture the manufacture, sale, transport, import, and export of alcoholic beverages .i believe they had good intentions but a bat outcome. the reason i think this is because they were trying to get people to stop drinking alcohol so their won't be as many arrests, but despite that people continue drinking in secret places called speak easies. speak easies ans secret places that go against the 18th amendment in virtually every way,they are not to be spoken about, hence the name speak easies. Papa comes home sober but we can all smell liquor in his breath. he is being nicer and more caring to Mama, sister, brother and I.
7: Mama and Papa say that the whole family is going to move to the north to a place called Boston, Massachusetts. They say that we are moving to escape discrimination. Sister and i both know that we are going to the north because they have better job opportunities and because the jobs pay better while here in the south the jobs are scarce and low paying in addition to escaping discrimination. despite the fact that one of the reasons we moved to the north is to escape discrimination, we still deal with discrimination and violence , and it wont stop, not in this lifetime.
9: I went to go see Louis Armstrong today in the more expensive part of ,town and i liked it a lot.Louis Armstrong is such a good jazz composer. he is my favorite. His music makes me banish any bad things I've seen or herd about in the world because of his song beautiful world.
