I am starting my life over and this time as a free citizen! The Reconstruction Amendment changed my life for the better and now I don't have to worry about my kids having to live the life I had lived thanks to the 13th amendment. I don't have to worry about doing what other people want me to do and from now on I am I am no longer the property of someone else. I have rights now and they shall never be taken away from me as long as there is the 14th amendment. I can now vote as like every white man I now get a say in who i want in control. I can live my life in peace and live in a home I can call mine where my family and I can thrive and live.
