If I Could Go Back by Reese Moe
Today, I was introduced to a writing program and was asked to write about my life. So the day that changed my life was the day I got sent to a D.A.E.P. When I was in the fifth grade, I became a totally different person. It began the day I got mad at this white kid. Then, when I moved on to grades 6th – 8th, I became extra disrespectful towards people and my teachers.
Because of my behavior, when special events came around I wasn’t able attend them. I missed out on creating good memories of those opportunities in my life. So, listen to what I tell you and take it into your heart: “Think it all through, and don’t make poor choices in your life. The choices that we make in life can change it forever.”
Reese accessed our Writing for the Soul Workshop™ at J.D. Hall Learing Center. This was made possible by Mr. Terry Tucker, Student & Parent Liason there at the school and Charleston White, Founder of H.Y.P.E. Youth Outreach.
The J.D. Hall Learning Center at Rocky Crest serves a dual purpose in meeting the needs of students for whom the traditional educational setting provides challenges. The challenges that Reese was facing and his behavior is why he is currently attending the school. Reese not only shared his story, but talked to us about those challenges. They include lack of resources to get what’s on the inside …out, and to earn money to become more self-reliant.
