STEPHANIE DRAGOON: What will you miss most about Mossville?
CHARLOTTE BERNARD: You can never get your childhood back once you leave it. And it was just a good time for my . . . bringing us up, being brought up all together with not only my sisters and brothers, but my neighbors. We all stuck together and did things. Can’t get that back, but I’m moving on.
I’m just having dreams and visions of me walking again and I left Mossville . . . I went to Mossville. I was walking, and when I go back, I’m going to go back before I walk. But I’m just going to stick to the idea that I’ll be there once again walking and riding them horses. And I’m going to go to somebody’s house. Somebody going to have a horse. I’m going to ride through Mossville with my head in the air just running and hollering and riding that horse.
