  •  I remember reading about that (11+ / 0-)

    it made me think about my experience there. We came into Chamberburg to the bus stop that was in a small store of some kind. I was waiting for my friend's family to pick me up and there were two young black men with me who had to  wait for the next bus.

    We had been talking about popular music on the bus and was continuing our conversation as we came into the store. The chill in the air was unbelievable and I was so stupid I didn't realize that I was actually endangering those nice guys lives. I'm glad their bus came and I saw them leave just as my friend showed up.

    I learned a lot during those days.
