It was my sophomore year of high school. I made a choice at the beginning of the year that in my heart I felt was right, and had no idea the consequences through doing what was right would play out in my life.
I was in math class, and two of the girls were cheating on a test out loud. After class I reported it to the teacher. Well after time passed, they found out who had reported them and decided that they would send grief my way for the rest of the year. And made it their personal goal to make my life as miserable as possible. Everything from trying to set it up as if I was the liar to justify their own means.
Mr. Walker, my English professor, he was one of my best friends in high school. He was my mentor. He told me, “You know what, the teachers believe you. They know that you’re not that kind of person. They know that in the end that people will see the truth, and all will be explained.” And that gave me hope that it wouldn’t always be like this. That I wouldn’t go home crying. Luckily at the end of that sophomore year, I did get an apology letter fully written out by one of the girls, and she wanted to start befriending me again. To anyone who is dealing with something, I say hold fast. It is exactly as they say, His joy will come in the morning.
