Did you hear about the sequoia that grew
from a whole in the ground?
Proving nature’s law is me
graduating with my class.
Learned to walk without shoes.
Funny it seems, but by keeping my dreams,
I learned to make smarter choices.
Long live the sequoia that grew in a whole
when no one else did anything.

Ghetto Life 101

I learned that the life in the ghetto is a lot different then the life that we have. I learned that in the Ida B. Wells Prejects that it would be really rare for them to see a white person. I also found out that almost every kid in the ghetto has seen someone get shot or stabbed or even killed. Also there is a lot more hard drugs in the ghetto then there is where we live.

The death of Erik Morse was so surprising to me, I mean seriously who would ever do that to a little kid.
