FREEDOM FROM SELF TOARMENT IS FREEDOM WHAT WAS TRUELY HOW ONE'SSELF IS MENT TO BE~
Stuart D Mayes, Louisville Ky
In 1955, Mr. Jim Huxel, the Principal of my school, pulled me out of the classroom and into his office wherein he gave me swats with a wood panel. I asked him Why me. There were other kids goofing around. Why did you pull only me out of the class.He said, "Because you are smart, you have talent, you can make it - I care about you. Stop goofing around and apply yourself and you will be successful.
I walked out of his office with a very sore butt however, I felt fantastic. Someone cares about me, someone thinks I have talent. Ï can do it - Mr. Huxel said so --- and he was right.
