Have you ever heard that a person could ‘mark’ him or herself? When my brother was a teenager, he walked behind a person who had mental illness and who had similar features to an ape or ape-like. The person had come through our neighborhood. My brother went behind the person and acted like an ape, marking the person. He also, took ahold of my grandmother’s crutch one day and put it under his left arm and held up his left leg—pretending to have one leg—and walked around laughing. Years later, in his early twenties, he developed mental illness after losing his left leg. Something to think about.
