  • Sometimes Things Turn Out ALl right

    When I arrived, someone told me to look for the man with the big ears, a mole on his face and danced funny. I said, "You mean watch out?" The girl just smiled and shook her head. That was my introduction to juvenile justice and sure enough, he showed up at 7 a.m. the next day and now, almost four years later, I want to thank him. When he talked to me, he looked me in the eye like I was a real person. He asked me about my life like he cared. He didn't judge me, but he didn't buy my "It's not my fault!" story either. A kid knows when an adult is being real and he was real. He called me on my B.S., but not like he was playing "gotcha." He was the first person who could make me laugh at myself and the first person who asked what I thought about something as if he really wanted to know.
