- Joe was happy. Like really happy. There was a noticable difference in his countenance.
- He said he was going to school and that he loved it. I quickly questioned him since he had dropped out of high school. He explained that he really liked this school because there was no homework.
- He talked of having things wrong. There were things he did not understand. He talked about learning and that he had lots to do.
I was 17 years old. At the time of this visit I did not live at home. I did not live with my parents. I myself was a kid in trouble. Joe reached out. He made a difference. Our visit changed me. Slowly. His visit rescued me. There is more to this story.
