Spring Street International School shares this story about their upcoming play Tumbleweed People in No Mans Land…

Tom Edgar Hobbs:
“My father sold bibles door to door. They were so beautiful, with their gold edges and whisper-thin paper like angel wings. But I could see poor folks buying them because they thought we must’ve done something to deserve the big dust. And I couldn’t help but say, ‘God is just not that kind of mean.’ I couldn’t help but say, ‘God loves us, as is.’

So go ahead, Senator. Lock me up for riding without a ticket. Chain me to another kid with a pickaxe. I’ll be out before the year’s over, and I’ll be standing in a boxcar door at the end of a train crossing the Ohio River. Know what I’ll see? Hundreds of kids just like me, clinging to the tops of the cars. And we’ll grow up, Sir, and we’ll be good people. We already know how to work. You cannot make me hate my life and this world.”
