    By the age of ten, I had developed a robust enthusiasm for the field of American history. Visits to my grandparents apartment in our hometown of Hempstead, Long Island would often lead me across the the street to the public library. It was there where I developed my bibliophilic nature. This was how I sojourned — it was through the bookshelves of history that I learned about topics ranging from the great Hannibal of Carthage and his legendary achievements in the Second Punic War to memorizing Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address to diving deeply into King’s theory on nonviolence coupled with the SCLC’s strategy to win equal rights for our people. This was my escape from the cacophonous noise that was my world, from all the things I would see or feel and yet could not comprehend. This was my calm during the storm, my peace that was to be still. By the time I had reached High School, much of that pre pubescent fervor had ebbed. I was now a teenager more concerned with two of the things most boys coming of age fancy themselves with: girls and sports,…

    Since no one will ever see what I write there is no chance of my parents haemorrhaging. To be honest at this stage of my life "all that crap" is all I have. So here goes: My last day of school, six months earlier, was the apogee of my life. Finally, I did not have to obey the senseless school rules and dress codes nor bear, with few exceptions, the boring lessons or illogical opinions of teachers. I could make my own decisions, decide how to spend whatever I earned. I have a rebellious…

    I found the podcasts to be very intriguing and brought attention to situations that I had no idea existed. If we look beyond the fact that twenty nine students were injured and three were killed the past year at Harper High, it sounds very similar to the high school I attended. While mine was much smaller in size and was primarily white and located in a rural setting, the students and school faculty seemed to have similar relationships. In the podcast, the narrator states that the faculty likes…
