About two months ago, Camp Take Notice voted to attend Sunday in the Park with the Forgotten Workers. It takes place the 2nd and 4th Sundays of each month. The event is a loosely organized group of members of the Detroit IWW ["Wobblies"], UAW activists and other community members coming with hot food, sweet treats, clothes and other warm things.
Eight from our ranks joined the festivities on Sunday Feb 9 including Shaquanna, Spyder, Ryan, Christy, Mugger, Caleb, Denise, and Greg. We gave away 16 pounds of oranges and tangelos, a big box of cookies, a carton of donuts, 27 pairs of socks, a bunch of coats, scarves, gloves, and two big boxes of canned goods.
Afterwards, Ryan, Mugger, Christy and Greg went to Belle Isle and walked through the Scripps Conservatory. It was a great day! Everyone came back with a smile!

You wonder why, that your life was nothing but a messed up lie. It hurts to know the truth, you said that you were sure. Okay now what’s going to happen to me? Trying to stay clean, can’t get away from the question why me? A miracle is what I need. I got to be strong for both my babies. I’m going to do this, watch me.
It hasn’t been easy but I know one thing, no one is going to stop me. Life is so beautiful and I’m done living in a dark cold world. Yes I’m sure, very sure, so sure that this miracle is my cure.
God is making it happen right now. How? It’s called faith, faith is your strength. It comes from within. Yeah that’s right I win. I know devil that you are still there, but I really don’t care, because I’m not scared. I’ll look you in your face and tell you that you will not win.
Okay watch out, I’m ready for whatever devil that you got, it’s on let’s go, I did not sell you my soul. I have a miracle and it’s going to change my whole life, that’s right. Devil you lose, there is way too much for me that I have to do, try to test me, God has been with me the whole time. It’s not your life it’s mine.
So see I told you that you were not going to win, I know that I have sinned. But the best thing is, is that God does forgive, and with that I’m now about to live. It’s not ever gonna be like it used to, because God has gave me this miracle.
