Duval, Remember The Old Times...

by Vamecia Powell

Remember when Gateway was the place to be?

Remember wanting to go to Raines
'cause all your family graduated from there?

Remember you used to be proud to live on the Northside?

Remember those hot summers going outside to play?

Remember going to get a honey dripper when you had a quater?

Remember racing down the street barefooted?

Remember having to come in when the street lights came on?

Remember having a barbeque every weekend
even when it rained then they would put the grill on the porch?

Remember going to your first Jaguars game?

I remember people just having fun together.
You didn't have to do anything to gain friends.
Now, people gotta get something from you
until they can give you something. Why is that?

Duval, yall remember?
