I Was Harrassed By Police and all I got was...

Traumatized. If you've never been harrassed by police, like I'd NEVER been, you may have a similar reaction.
Post traumatic stress disorder.

I had the worst case of writer's block in all my life as a result. I shut down subconsciously, and began living in fear of all things unknown. And, I didn't know how to come out of it. I'm still recovering.

Honestly, one day at a time is not a cliche. I'm able to get past the experience because of all the days that have followed that fateful day when one racist police officer decided to turn his anger and frustrations into a weapon against me.

The devil may have his due, but my triumph is the peace I have found despite such ugliness.

My writing will continue.
