So, the student I like so well that I thought had been dropped was in school today. I was pretty excited when I saw him and told him the rumors I had heard. "Nobody can keep me down Mr. V you should know that" was his response. We talked for a bit and he told me how his friend (another one of my favorites) was hit by a drunk driver while walking across the street over break. He will be ok, but out of school for 2 weeks recovering.
There are a lot of rumors of students who were shot over break, but I think most of them aren't true so I won't share any of those stories until I know the facts!
