My
Experience in Mansura Louisiana

I was
born in Mansura, Louisiana. My father moved to Dallas, Texas after he married
my mother. My sister and I were born in Dallas. As a child however, we would
often visit Mansura during spring break. I enjoyed it very much because the area
in which we played was great since my grandparents owned the land. A hundred
acres of land is a lot of land to run around and play. This meant that my
sister and I were able to run around the whole place with our cousins. My
grandparents owned the whole block; therefore, we did not encounter any big
problems, except for normal kid stuff of playing and having fun. We were all kin
to one another. In addition, Mansura is a small
town with very friendly people, and everyone knew everyone. There were no
prejudices shown anywhere. No one never had to worry about their children when
they were playing outside.

During
our visits in Mansura, there was plenty of food no matter whose house we
visited. My Grandparent’s Louisiana home had a crawfish pond, a bayou, a lake,
a volleyball net, go carts, and hunting areas. This meant that we could have
crawfish and fish daily. The extended family in Louisiana was very warm and
welcoming, and they showered us with so much love to a point where we never
wanted to leave. My cousins were especially thrilled every time we would visit,
and we would hang out together all day and would get very little sleep at night,
until it was time for us to return to Dallas. Therefore, Louisiana is a big
part of my life, especially because our extended family is closely-knit
regardless of where each family member lives. Now that we are grown, I have
cousins from Louisiana who moved to Dallas and we get to see each other more
often. We however do not see each other much because everyone works.

Today
I am fifty-one years old, and every time I visit Louisiana it’s like nothing
has changed except for the passing of our grandparents and some of my cousins
that I grew up with.

Most of the traditions and sense of community carries
on. I still like visiting our Louisiana home because it is usually a good break
from the big city. There, one does not have to worry about getting into trouble
and it is easy to ask for help when needed. There is also less crime and rarely
do incidences of people being shot come up. This is unlike Dallas where all
types of crime go on. In Mansura, one does not have to lock their doors at
night because they neither have to worry about people breaking in their house
nor people walking into your home uninvited.

If I
had a choice, when raising my family, I would have moved back to Mansura. Just
as I did when I was young, today my grandchildren love going to Louisiana in
the summer because they can take a break from the city life and get to be
children by running around the fields. My dream is to one day move back to
Mansura and spend the rest of my days there. I would love to put a trailer home
on my parent’s land. This will be nice because I will be able to take my
grandchildren there every summer and spring break. In addition to visiting our
home in Louisiana, I want my grandchildren to also learn their roots and more
about their family that stays there.
