Chapter II: Safe Schools Great Schools
RING RING RING! Charity got a call on America’s hands free phone system, it was her cousin Joey who was going through a tough time in high school and needed Charity’s advice. She’d always been more like a sister to him, so, since she was already driving cross country, she decided to visit him all the way up in Philadelphia. When she got there, Joey was sitting outside on the bleachers of the football field, all alone. “What’s up champ?” said Charity, as Joey sobbed fighting back tears, surprised to see Charity all the way from Florida. “What are you doing here Charity?” “You need me, silly, so I’m here to help! Talk to me, what’s going on?” “Nothing said Joey, I just hate this school, I hate the teachers, I hate the students, I hate them all!”
“Woe there champ, slow down,” said Charity, “first tell me what happened.” “It’s not what happened, it’s what always happens, what’s been happening since I first moved up here, the teachers here treat me like garbage, embarrassing me in front of the class, and other kids make my life impossible here! I want to leave so bad, but I can’t. My dad says we have to stay and that I have to suck it up!” Charity was visibly upset, also feeling her cousin’s anger, so she asked him, “You want me to talk to them? I can you know!” “No!” said Joey, “I don’t want to talk to anyone, I’m sick and tired of everything. I’ll show them all one day, soon, I’ll make them regret all of it!” he said. “Joey, listen to yourself baby, you know that’s not you talking. I know you’re upset, and you have every right to be, but don’t give in to anger and hate. That’s letting them win one over you, it’s what they want. You have to be the better man and rise above it all, that’s what our family taught us growing up, isn’t it?”
“I’m not the only one though,” said Joey, “ I know a lot of kids like me all over the neighborhood, and I read online that it’s the same problem all over the country in different schools. There’s just so much hate, so much bullying. When will it all end?” “Well,” said Charity, “maybe you’re the solution! Sounds like you have a real advantage there, and I’m going to help you. Let’s talk to all those friends of yours and their parents and form an activist group. We can end bullying on campus, whether it comes from students or teachers. We can call the initiative, “Safe Schools Great Schools. “How will that work,” asked Joey? “We can organize fundraisers, get the community to donate to their local schools, and use the money to hire professional teachers and counselors – really good ones who care about their students, helping students to adapt, and create a better healthier learning environment. Also, we can install cameras, metal detectors, and so much more to help keep the school safe and incident free.” Joey liked the idea, but it seemed so far out of reach, like how, he wondered, would they get the whole community to donate that much money? Charity wondered the same, and she knew that the project would need to be bigger than she thought, and since this problem was happening all over America, she decided to do something about it. Charity would go to Washington D.C.!
