RHMS parents should be proud

Dear Editor: I am writing as the parent of a special needs son, age 12, in (Richmond Hill) Middle School that has just been elected by his sixth grade classmates as "Homecoming Prince" during the recent festivities and football game on Oct. 13. I cannot tell you how moved my wife and I are that these children are as nurturing and supportive of Charlie Penn despite his obvious "differences."

You can overcome harsh words

The Bible says, in Proverbs 18:21, "the power of life and death is in the tongue." I can remember being told, as a little boy in the third grade, that I wouldn't be able to accomplish much. I was an African-American child living in the deep South. I had six siblings and a public education that ranked amongst the worst in the country. We drove around in an old station wagon. My family was poor financially, but rich spiritually and, as I grew older, I found out that I was not alone.

Tell me what you want to see

As a child who wanted nothing more than to grow up and become a journalist, I used to write stories for and draw out my own homemade "newspapers" to distribute to my family on Sunday mornings at breakfast. I tried to design my publications based on what I thought each of my family members might want to read. Dad's "newspaper" was about sports, and my younger sister's often featured reports on Strawberry Shortcake and her social circle.
