The Runaway Kids from 1967

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Gold DRE #00697006

 

Juvenile delinquents were kids who committed crimes like theft, robbery, assault and battery, they were not really kids who ranaway from home. But in 1967, kids were treated like hardened criminals if they left home without permission.

 

That's why I would not call myself a juvenile delinquent. Well, maybe I broke a few laws. You can read more in my personal blog today at this link: The Runaway Kids 50 Years Later from the Home of the Good Shepherd.

Incorrigible and bad influence are two phrases that were absolutely used to describe me, LOL. At least you had an older sister to go to, Myrl. I would say I see that runaway kid in you, too.

Elizabeth,

What a story you shared with us.  There is a book in this.  I had no idea you were from Minnesota.  I liived in St. Peter, Minnesota up to my first year in college at Gustavus Adolphus, and then went on back East to Mt. Holyoke, back to the University of Minnesota (Minneapolis), and then USC fro my Masters degree.  You were and still are "formidable" as a person.  A

Elizabeth- I am blown away by your story! 3 cigs a day! I am from that same era and can remember that once I entered college, my mother hated being seen with me when we went shopping in downtown Houston.  LOL I had on the typical hippie attire of the day-long hair ala Joan Baez. You know you look like Joanne Woodward in that picture with your friend.

Amazing how many kids ran away in that era. Don't know if the parents were too screwed up and the kids couldn't take it any more, or the kids wanted to belong to this great hippie movement happening. Me? I ran away at 19 to Hawaii, Waikiki Beach was an irresistible force for me - and my parents threatened to have me deported (from US back to Canada where I was an immigrant). I'm sure Canada couldn't care less to lose another immigrant to the US.

Hi Elizabeth, I should have figured you for a juvenille delinquent :-) but hey, you turned out great and are still as independent as ever.  I too, loved the story about the nuns.

What a post! I think it is wonderful that you kept in touch with your friend, and I also think you should write a book - I bet there are a lot of stories you could share. I remember telling my parents I was running away when I was probably about 8 or so. I went down and sat in the woods for an hour and came home.  The woods were part of our property and I bet my parents had their eye on me the whole time from the back porch.

Kids have always been vulnerable to difficult family dynamics but I know that many of us ran away.  I love your story-and I too ran away, but just to a girlfriend's house whose mom of course, called my parents and told them to come pick me up!

Overcoming obstacles.  That's you.  Bars on the windows.  No problem.  A listing that is about to go to foreclosure.  No problem.

Definitely an interesting story.  I saw a quote about friendship once that went something like this:

If you get thrown in jail, a friend will come visit you,

A good friend will throw your bail,

Your best friend will be in the cell with you. 

Always good to have a cell-mate in your life.
