FORCED OUT WITH NO SENSE OF JUSTICE

I AM MOVING TODAY ON MY WAY TO TAMPA, FLORIDA. IN MANY WAYS IT IS A NEW ADVENTURE AND OTHER WAYS IT'S DEPRESSING TO BE FORCED TO MOVED BECAUSE OF CIRCUMSTANCES BEYOND I FEEL MY CONTROL. THIS HAS BEEN MY WIFE ROBBIN AND MY HOME AND THE ONLY HOME FOR MY DAUGHTER SKYLER FOR THE PAST 19 YEARS. YESTERDAY, I SIGNED OWNERSHIP OVER TO ANOTHER FAMILY BECAUSE I JUST COULDN'T AFFORD TO STAY IN THE HOME ANY LONGER.

MY WEALTH WAS STOLEN FROM ME BECAUSE SOMEONE DECIDED IT WAS COOL TO LEAVE THE BACK DOOR OF A MOVING TRUCK UNATTACHED. THAT AND THE FACT THAT ONCE THEY SAW WHAT HAD HAPPENED THE YOUNG BLACK COUPLE LEFT THE SCENE OF THE ACCIDENT WITHOUT ANY CONCERN FOR MY PHYSICAL WELL-BEING. THEN THE COMPANY I HAD DEDICATED A QUARTER OF A CENTURY TO DECIDED THAT THEY SHOULD FIGHT WITH LEGAL VIGOR THE CASE IN WORKER'S COMPENSATION COURT FOR THE PAST 7 YEARS.

I AM STILL FIGHTING FOR JUSTICE FOR COMPENSATION THAT IS DUE ME. HOPEFULLY, THAT JUSTICE WILL COME SOON BUT IN THE MEANTIME THE ACCIDENT CAUSED ME TO DRAIN MY SAVINGS AND RETIREMENT FUNDS. I AM ALWAYS IN A STATE OF WONDER AND DESPAIR ABOUT THE QUESTION, WHY ME? I JUST SAW A PSYCHOLOGIST THIS PAST WEEK ABOUT THE ENORMOUS AMOUNT OF DEPRESSION AND ANXIETY THAT HAS OVERCOME ME PERSONALLY.

I HAVE HAD TO LIVE IN CONSTANT PAIN AND WITH THE MEMORY OF NOVEMBER 27, 2011 AND THAT GODDAMN TRUCK TIRE COMING OUT THE BACK OF THAT MOVING VAN. I WAS SIMPLY HEADED TO AN APPOINTMENT AND DIDN'T REALIZE THAT WITHIN SECONDS MY ENTIRE LIFE WOULD BE IN TURMOIL. AS I LIVE FOR THE SOUTHERN CLIMES TO ATTEMPT TO HELP MY DAUGHTER BUILD HER CAREER.

I LEAVE WITH THE KNOWLEDGE THAT MARYLAND SYSTEM OF LABOR PROTECTION HAS ABSOLUTELY FAILED ME. YOU ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO HAVE YOUR ECONOMIC LIFE AND PROFESSIONAL CAREER CRUSHED WITHOUT RECEIVING SOME FINANCIAL REMEDY EXCEPT OF COURSE UNLESS YOU'RE BLACK. BECAUSE IN MY CASE MY COLOR I FEEL WAS IN FACT USED AGAINST ME. SO GOODBYE MARYLAND AND I HOPE THAT SOMEONE IN THE WORKERS COMPENSATION COMMISSION FEELS MY PAIN AND ALLOWS MY ATTORNEY TO GAIN SOME REMEDY FOR MYSELF AND MY FAMILY.

I CREATED THIS PASSAGE IN ALL CAPS BECAUSE THAT'S HOW I FEEL RIGHT NOW CAPITALLY TREATED UNJUSTLY.
