If you do not want something to happen, you will by no means let it happen.
This makes me so happy, and yet so sad.
He was smart, he was a writer (you could tell by his phrasing) and this is something he TRULY cares about. That boy has a heart and he cares. He sees the truth for what it is and he refuses to sit idly and watch as the youth of america just stumbles by.
BUT the teacher was done. She didn’t care. She was fed up.
BUT the students were uncaring, even laughing, as this young man walked out
BUT this video was put online to be deemed as a joke and embarrass that boy.
THAT is unexceptionable
THAT is not right.
If you are this young gentleman if you are his relative, or if you have ever done something similar.
I am so proud of you
To take your opinion and share. NOT ONCE did he threaten her, NOT ONCE did he raise his voice above a proper projection so that the class could hear his words NOT ONCE did he insult her in any means past how she was behaving with her job. He didn’t undermine her. He didn’t hurt her, and yet he gave his message and left in peace.
That makes him a true, undeniable, super hero in my eyes.
Thank you sir.
Okay, this was at my school and he appeared on local news, so I’d like to say something.
This kid - Jeff - is an eighteen-year-old sophomore.
He dropped out of high school after his freshman year and came back because he wanted to finish his education.
That’s why he was so fed up. He’s not a lazy kid, as some people might expect from someone in his place - he WANTS to learn. And this teacher won’t let him.
This occurred yesterday, and today I heard multiple things about the teacher in question. No, she doesn’t teach, she just hands out packets. Moreover, she is completely rude to her students and cusses them out frequently (that was actually what started Jeff’s rant - he complained about their class not having as much time to finish their test as her other classes and she told him to “stop bitching”).
I don’t know whether or not the video was put up on YouTube to embarrass him. I don’t think it was. The kid taking the video was actually put in ISS, and someone said he might be moved to the Summit, which is out-of-school suspension in a building a mile or so down the street from our school. You can hear him say “square business” twice during the video - essentially the same as “real talk” or “amen”.
I wasn’t at school this morning when Jeff arrived, but reportedly everyone cheered and clapped for him. People were surrounding him throughout the day and asking for pictures with him. It’s going viral on Twitter, too.
Whether this video was posted on YouTube as a joke or not, it didn’t end that way. Everyone at our school knows about it and everyone at our school knows about Jeff now. It’s a big deal. I wouldn’t exactly call Jeff a hero… but he does seem to be a pretty great guy.
In an old house in Paris that was covered in vines, lived 12 little girls in two straight lines.
I was standing in line at dairy queen and I saw an elderly lady crying because she didn’t have enough money to pay for her small blizzard, so I bought her a large and helped her out to her car, and she cried and said ” I hope god made someone just for you out in the world so that they can treat you as special as you are” and I am sobbing right now.

Just a pool, disguised as a pond, with a trampoline instead of a diving board.
I wrote a paper about these kinds of pools several years ago for a class when they were just prototypes. These pools have a natural filtration system that run based on the plants that are in the pool that give the water nutrients that allow it to not only be crystal clear, but you are also able to drink the water because it becomes so clean. And the best part is that once the initial filtration system is installed and calibrated, it maintains itself and eliminates the need for chlorine or constant maintenance like salt water pools.
I’m 3,000% done.
