This is a picture of a bridge that is located on my First Nation community–Garden River First Nation. Growing up, I played on the bridge, under the bridge… I can’t believe some of the things I used to do, like hunt for worms to go fishing with or play with worms (I was a kid then too)! But seriously… worms? Don’t ask, I don’t know what I was thinking either. Guess it’s a kid growing up on the rez type thing. Today, I avoid worms at all costs! *LOL*
The words on the bridge is a bold statement but it is the truth.
I once showed this picture in a presentation for an interview. I highly recommend against it, especially if you are going to be the only Aboriginal in the room.
Note: I do not know who wrote these words on the bridge, as the words were there before I was born. They have been there for quite some time.
