Morning Has Broken

In the summer of 1972 my family moved to New Bern, NC  where I found my soul mate.  At sixteen years old I was the happiest I had ever been....until Dad gave us the news we were moving again.

My family moved to New Bern in the winter of 1972. I was sixteen years old. It was here that I found my soul mate and was in love for the very first time. I was happy with the church, the school, and the neighborhood. Life seemed just about perfect………until Dad said we would be moving again.

I would be leaving my contented life and my soul mate behind. The years ahead would bring much despair.
