How sad that a teacher took away his joy like that...I am glad you were his friend, even if just for a little while. Maybe he is writing on FW, and will recognize himself?
The descriptions are so vivid, my heart broke for this little boy. Excellent writing when you can stir emotions in your reader.

If he became a teacher, I'm sure he's a far better one than the teacher he had. Thank you for having wisdom beyond your years, and for standing in his corner.
Nice writng style. Cool ending.

allen, i'm not a poet but i could picture the kid in the corner as i read your story. we have many great teachers but it is so sad to see one who limits the creativity of a child.

Raw and emotional, I was gripped and left very moved by this entry. Thanks for writing!
