By Any Means Necessary Part 26

Sampson could barely make out the red flashing lights coming up behind him,the 52 Chevy was in the ditch about a half mile from his home,the Rescue Squad had pull up after a call came in from the State Patrol.Billy Bob, Sampson his best friend since the Korean War,was working overtime applying bandages to Sampson wounds,Sampson after deciding to go back into that world of drugs and alcohol was again on the brink of death,Minnie and her children were running toward the accident tears streaming from their eyes,for they already knew that Sampson had gone back to that world.Clem the  State Patrolman also Billy Bob's brother stopped them before they could see the blood and guts,but prayers and God's grace were already in the works.All Minnie and the kids could see or hear were the lights and wail of the rescue truck speeding off towards Wilmington to the Colored hospital.

By Any Means Necessary Part 25

There were some mornings for Sampson the craving for the life of drugs and alcohol were mindbending,he would have to remind himself of the need to stay clean.
When the feeling became unbearable he knew he was in need of pray from his brother-in-law Rev.John.
But this time the devil won,Sampson hopped into the 52 chevy and was off to the races,damn the past was what  stayed on his mind,damn the new found freedom of being sober,damn the fact his family was now reasonably happy,he just wanted to get high!

By Any Means Nesssary Part 24

Minny was up at the crack of dawn,as the old folk use to say before God turned on the lights.The Smell of smoked country ham smoldered the house,the children were awaken naturally,Sampson set along silently in the bed praying and thanking God for his blessing.

By Any Means Necsessary Part 23

Life in Crackling,NC hadn't changed that much since MLK and since the Civil Rights Moment had struck,truth be told most Black folk were cool without him,white folk control the the town and if you were trying to go along then you had no problem.But with remembering himself being close to death Sampson refuse to accept things as they use to be,he remembered the bullet wounds from the war,he remembered the drugs and alcohol,he  couldn't forget the sadness of not being the father that he is now.

By Any Means Necessary Part 22

It's been  almost a year since Sampson had taken charge of his life and therefore his family,he had planted 40 acres of tobacco and 10 acres  of corn,this was the first spring that he didn't have to go to the saving and loan for help,and his wife Minny was having their seventh child.
