It’s been a busy week for Carrie Nation, the first female president of the United States.
On Tuesday, she gave a speech at the annual White House Correspondents Dinner, which is in her home state of Washington.
And on Wednesday, she announced her candidacy for the White House.
Carrie Nation is not a politician, but she’s one of the first women to run for office in the United State of America, and she’s the first woman in American history to serve as the first African-American president.
“My grandfather died when I was born,” Carrie Nation told me.
“I grew up in a house that was built on a graveyard.”
And while the funeral home she’s in has a large cemetery, it’s also filled with other graves, some of which she remembers well.
Carrie was born in 1962 and is the eldest of four children.
Carrie’s family is black, and Carrie herself is white.
“When I was a kid, there were people in the neighborhood that were calling me white.
My mom and dad, my sisters and my brothers and sisters-in-law all had the same name,” Carrie said.
“They were all called ‘black.'”
The family moved from Alabama to New Orleans in the late 1950s.
In the 1960s, Carrie and her brother were working at a meatpacking plant, but after the war, the family moved back to New York.
Carrie, who now works in advertising and design, has a bachelor’s degree in education.
“In high school, I had a lot of trouble,” Carrie told me in a phone interview.
“But it was because I was the only black girl in my class.”
She and her sister, the only two girls in her class, were all invited to a party that ended up being a racist one.
“And I remember sitting there with my mom and my sisters,” Carrie recalled.
“We were all sitting around a table and everybody started talking about the party.
“It was really just, it was like the worst thing that could happen to me,” Carrie continued. “
“Because it was a school. “
It was really just, it was like the worst thing that could happen to me,” Carrie continued.
“Because it was a school.
And I didn’t belong in there.”
The school was in Harlem, where Carrie’s father had been a teacher.
“So it was really, it felt like, ‘This is the last thing we need,'” Carrie said of her first day.
Carrie recalls the class was full of students of all races, including children of color.
“You could see that we were all, we were black,” Carrie says.
“All of us were sitting in that same row.
It was really a weird situation.”
But Carrie was still in the classroom when she noticed that the teacher was speaking to the class.
“That’s when I saw the teacher,” Carrie remembered.
“She was like, this is so wrong.
You’re so bad.
You know, you should be ashamed of yourself.
And then I started to cry.”
The teacher was talking to a group of students about their feelings about race and discrimination.
Carrie remembers the teacher’s voice, as she started to speak, “We’re all going to be here.”
“And then I just remember looking at her and crying.
I just thought, Oh my God.
This is not right,” Carrie explained.
“This is not the right way to do it.
And she said, ‘No, no, no.
“Every one of them, every one of those kids, they were the only ones who said anything. “
They were like, No, no no. “
Every one of them, every one of those kids, they were the only ones who said anything.
They were like, No, no no.
They weren’t there,” Carrie added.
“For me, this was just the worst feeling that I could ever have.”
So when Carrie got home from school, she asked her mother if she could sit down and write a letter to the president.
Carrie wrote her mother an email and sent it to the White.
“As soon as I got home, I wrote my letter,” Carrie recalls.
“The letter went to the press.
And my mother got really angry.”
“She said, you wrote a letter that went to a newspaper?
You don’t get to sit at home?”
“Well, no,” Carrie replied, “I can’t sit at my desk.
And that’s why I did it.
I had to do something.”
The letter went on to include a series of “trigger words” for any student who might feel offended by Carrie’s speech.
Carrie didn’t think she needed to write that letter, but at that point, she had an epiphany.
“By the time I got to the part where I said, I’ve got to go home, the whole thing, it just hit me,
