I'm a victim of eighteen years of brutal war, I didn't wish to have such experience again, most especially from my neighbors in the United States were I less expect it. I didn't think I would be so terrified or be a victim of any violence again after I entered this country. I feel like it was a war and I still feel the same as I'm writing this story. I have become a victim again and this time I believe that I'm a victim of racism in my neighborhood. I'm so terrify that I had to moved my kids out of the house. since we moved into our house, it has been one problem after another. The driver side window of my car was broken by an unknown person for the second time in my yard on 8/5/13.First of all, for almost a month, we saw bags fill with trash on our step. we did nothing but trash it each time we saw it. They always walked their dogs into our yard and never clean after it. we confronted no one every time we saw it but clean it. On 8/6/13, my husband, my sister and I were beaten by at least fifteen to twenty white males and females, the same neighbors who I believe always walked their dogs in our yard. The son of one of our neighbors brought his dog in our yard to poop while my husband was cleaning the lawn and he left the poop there. My husband confronted him to clean after his dog, he refused but instead when home and told his mother. At 8PM I came home from picking up my daughter from her dance school and met two white females and a male including the mother of the boy screaming and cursing my husband in our yard. They were all upset because according them, my husband had no business to confront their son regarding dog poop. It has been their constant habit to bring their dogs into our yard and they say they were right to do so. I heard the lady whose son walk his dog into our yard say, their dog will poop in our yard everyday and there is nothing we can do about it. And she called my husband black bitch. The other lady said "you guys need to go back to your country" and she called him the 'N' word. The male hit him in his chest. I was in total shocked when I heard and saw what they were doing and saying to him. my husband got upset and wanted to hit him back but I ran between them to stop him. while I was pulling my husband away, another white male I believe in his late 60s hit him in his chest and another white male in his 30s punched him in his neck. The one in his 30s ran to his house and brought a base ball bat to hit him. This time I called 911 and tried to stop him from hitting my husband. while appealing to the man in his 30s to stop, three white women ran from across the street. The one I believe in her late 50s took my cell phone from my hand and throw it in the middle of the street and someone stole it. The same woman punched the left side of my face and I felt on the ground, while on the ground she sat on my neck and bite my right wrist. Another one ripped my clothes while the other throw punches all over me. my sister was pulled by her hair and hit in the neck by a white male while trying to video tap the incident. He took her phone from her and throw it away. People were everywhere but no one could stop them except a black male who came and took the women from on top of me. They all ran before the police got there. We had to go to the emergency that night after the beating. A day after the incident, I was in my basement on the computer between 10PM and 11PM, I heard the sound of two persons walking. one of them said "I will make sure I get these 'F' Africans one by one. I was very scare to get out but after few minutes I looked out and it were two white males which I can not describe. The next morning I went to the police station and filed a police report. I have police report of everything that happen including the breaking of my car. We have been living in fear since then. My kids can no longer play at the park nether outside our house due to fear that someone may harm them. I'm finding it difficult to sleep at night thinking that someone might come and harm us. My sister and my kids are not in the house right now because of fear. This is a horrible situation and I wont wish it for my worst enemy. I would appreciate the opportunity to tell my story on TV. I want to tell my neighbors that I have been living in fear since I was seven. I have suffered too long to come to this country and still go through the same thing I went through for eighteen years and ran from. I cant bear to see my kids living in fear like I did when I was seven during the Liberian Civil War. We want to move but we already but the house we are living in so I don't know what to do. we need help to relocate, I can no longer do this by my self. Please help us to relocate from this neighborhood before we perish. My kids are are all I have in this country, I don't want anything to happen to them. For God sake, please help us to relocate.
