Writer's Block: School daze

Do you have negative or positive associations with the beginning of the school year?

It depends. When I read this question this immediately came to mind. There were times when I thought negative things like when my Mom dropped me off for the first day of kindergarten. I can remember holding on to a pole crying. I was 5 years old.. I remember a year or so later when I went to the boys room. I turned around and seen a kid holding himself up near the wall. I don’t think I said anything to him. I looked again when it seemed like he was dizzy and just fell on the floor and was laying there, very still. Keep in mind this was a very long time ago. Other boys came in the room and were pointing and laughing at him. I just stood there. I don’t remember how long? A moment or so later 2 teachers came in the room and helped him up and took him away. I remember a week later when the teacher came in the class room and put some flowers on his desk and told us he died. I remember him as nice kid. One of the good guys. Years later, shortly before she died, my Mom and I were driving by this school and she apologized for sending me there. I was surprised that she would say that. I’m not going to say it was a bad place. Lots of good things did happened. It was just the way it was before teachers had brains and laws….

5:30 pm the same day....I just remembered his name was Danny...
