Tunnel of Oppression  Amber Wickard  10­01­2015  WGS      When I heard the word ​ Oppression​ , I thought, “What does that even mean?”  At the beginning, I was put off by the hanging noose. It makes the message pretty clear and  really saddens me to know that people go to such drastic measures­that there is so much hatred  and evil in the world. I’ve always been a pretty emotional person and seeing the wars and  bombing, the killing and name­calling.. It all really got to me. Even sitting in school throughout  my high schools years, I’d get upset about having to talk about the Holocaust and go home in  tears. I don’t think anyone should ever have to face life with so much burden. And the fact that  many people do, is sickening. I really hope that, one day, people can widely be accepted and  loved. As human beings, that’s all anyone ever wants, is to be truly cared about, I believe.  All  people are equal, when it comes down to science. We all have the same bones and cells and  organs. That’s all there is to it. I saw a picture in the exhibit, with a child’s face that had been  smashed in. I don’t understand how another person could do that to such a young, living,  breathing being. It just seems absurd to me. What if that was your son or daught? Your brother or  sister? It’s so heart­wrenching to see pictures like that and know that they actually happen.  Another subject that hit close to home is abuse and violence against women. I grew up  with parents that didn’t always get along and well, it got very physical. Me being the oldest  daughter of four, I always chose to go downstairs and stand by my mother, no matter what was  going on. It could be anything for my step­dad from wanting money for drugs, wanting her to  give him the car keys, he needed to buy more alcohol, or just wanted to sleep with his wife.  Many nights, we’d be woken up from screaming and cursing come from downstairs, usually  around 12­1am. And after a while, my sisters eventually learned to sleep through it most nights.  But I would go downstairs and lay with my mom on the couch until she either decided to give  him what he wanted or he go to bed from already being to drunk or high to continue his rant.  Other nights, we weren’t as lucky. We’ve had to leave the house with bags packed before and  stay with family or even sleep in the car. It’s not an experience I’d ever wish on another  person­let alone any women dealing with the likes of. I don’t care who you are, if you’re ever in  a situation like that, you don’t just walk out that door. You run and go as far away as possible.  Unfortunately, my mom is still in that house, she still experiences the fights, the yelling, the  abuse. And there’s nothing I can tell her to make her leave if she isn’t ready for it.   If there’s one thing I know, it’s that everyone deserves love and acceptance and to never  be afraid of doing anything in life. To never have to fear walking down the street or being in  their own home. I hope everyone learns that early on in life. And even if they don’t I pray they  would soon, because a person can only take so much shit from the world and other people before  they ‘crack’. The last thing anyone wants or wishes is for another precious life to be taken.
