Who am I. I am a Canadian Man.
I was born in 1962. I was removed from my family and the reserve and most records of my
early days are near impossible to find. I spent a while in the care of
the protestant boys home. I thank them for caring for me.
At about 5 years old I was adopted by the McKenna family.
My adopted father was good , strong and a man to be like.
He died a month after I turned 11. I have had no male role models
in my life since that date. This is good since I would rather be
like him than anyone else.
I went to work at 12 for a bowling alley.
I did the duties of mechanics helper.
I was fired 2 years later when a new owner took over.
I worked for K-Mart for 2 years pushing a broom.
I also went to school during these years.
I then worked for sears.
I quit school at a young age.
I went to work for grafton fraser on younge street at queen.
This was when Darr Robinson lept from the C.N tower with a piano wire
on his back(amazing).
I then worked for miss anne lord at DROL systems as a junior computer programmer
During all these year my Aunt mary docherty helped me greatly.
She has helped in so many ways and I thank her for this.
I have worked at many positions
sales guitar store
overhead crane operator
currently I drive trucks, across Canada and the United States of America.
After 30 years of working I have nothing to speak of for assets.
I am broke all this time.
Still I live to have a proper meaning reflective of what is a hard-worker.
This has been a burden. It can be looked up in a dictionary and the meaning
points to slavery. I often work with men who's ancestors may have been slaves.
All I can do is the best I can and hope for change.
My employers benefitted from my being there and I got chump change.
In early 2005 I had to move in with my sister and her family.
I am broke and collections is on my back daily.
I hold out hope for better days.
The easiest way to see what I'm doing now is to go to
