Yes my ancestors were quite inclined to oral histories. It's one of the many reasons I consider learning history to be a sacred duty really. A Nehiraw of the past would have been expected to learn and remember the entire history of his family and tribe. As for recording the rituals and stories of my people..Not so long ago that would be have been considered a minor insult but times have changed and recently an increase in recording and documenting such things has happened. I suppose if for no other reason so that hopefully the children or grand children etc of the current uncaring generation might reclaim their cultural legacy.


One does what one must, I'm afraid.


As for my attitude to the world at large. Perhaps one day I might lose the anger that compels me to see some examples of humanity as less then worthy of life but it's not going to happen any time in the near future is all I can promise.


This is enough for now.

Most of them are okay, but the other 3 people who aren't..

Let's just say that one of them pulled the wedding ring off his dead father's hand, in plain sight at the last viewing of a funeral and threatened to shoot anyone who tried to stop him

That most of them never had children. My family's been dying off for generations.. In just my 30 years of life we've shrunk from about twenty down to six, excluding myself, and the next generation looks to be even smaller.

Well, if they didn't want the name to die with me they shouldn't have put all their eggs in one basket, should they?

My mother almost encourages this passive racism and stupidity in my brother. Though she'd never admit the former, she accepts the latter.

I hate that my father's side of the family is so distant. Most of them are pretty neat people.

They're all intolerant and old-fashioned. I love them, but I don't think they'd do the same after I told them about some things about myself.

My mother has this weird compulsion to turn on damn near every light in the house at night. Kind of annoying.

So there are two sides of my family: my mom's side and my dad's side. I mean, duh for that. But my gosh, the two are so completely different from each other that it is unbelievable. Both sides of the family are deathly afraid of the other so they never get together.

My dad's side could be called Professionally Boring. Social gatherings could more accurately be called socially awkward gatherings. Nobody wants to make eye contact with anyone else. Eventually people will go into the TV room and watch something in complete silence. Everyone is awkwardly employed in quiet professions like accounting, insurance, or engineer. Most of them live in Chicago so the Bears are popular but some other teams like the Steelers have their fans. Nobody discusses this, but which game is watched is determined by who gets the remote first.

My mom's side meanwhile could be called Professional Miscreants. Social gatherings aren't really a social gathering until one cousin punches another in the face. Probably off a porch. Alcohol and more will be involved. As will shouting and hollerin'. Most have done a tour in the army. About half are consistently employed. The rest...well...the police just ignore them unless they get too out of hand. For some reason, everyone is also a Packers fan. None of them have been been to Wisconsin, let alone Green Bay. I would wager less than half know that Green Bay is in Wisconsin.

I don't really hate them as much as I facepalm at them, but for different reasons. One of my Things to Do if I ever get a time machine is to go back to my parents' wedding so I can see the two mingle.

My family is a family of victory, I hate nothing about my own kin, we're all monsters in our own way.
