I get it, there was a FB group created called "you grew up in Cahokia if you...". It is mostly white people who moved out bitching about what Cahokia has become. All very true, and sad.

Key words: USE TO BE. If your here to start shit then you obviously dont remember. My childhood in Cahokia was great, but under no circumstances will my child be rased there.

How about the bike trails that were behind the Pennimann School and the skating rink was great.

I remember these places, but not the Rope and the other ones you mentioned. Do you remember the old show that was across the street from Braun's Funeral Home? In the 50's.

If you watched drunken, ignorant bigots harass folks wanting to get along with all and run them out of town while throwing their own trash all over town.

Having block parties. We would block off our end of the street put tables in the middle of the street and people would bring a dish. We usually had fish that the men of the neighborhood caught. It was GREAT!

When you told your Mom you were going to the pond you had to differentiate between the first, the second or third and only one actually contained water. Or when you rode your bike to Dillon's Market to buy cigarettes for your Grandma.

Working at Dandee Burger, the roller rink, the Bluffs, playing all day at "the creek" behind Barber Street, Qwik Way, Pitzman School, Chartrand School (does anyone remember Miss Mayes who taught 6th grade in 1971-72?), Futura Drive-In, Glik's, Lums, the trucks that used to come down all the roads during the summer to spray for bugs, etc. Drove through many years ago. Wish I hadn't. Would've liked to remember it like it was.
