When I was born I was told I could be what ever I wanted to be. They told me that nothing would get in my way that I was in charge of my own destiny. That is what I was told, as I got older things changed I couldn’t do what I wanted I was laughed at I was criticized I was told that I was to dumb to be anything but a cashier at the local restaurants. In school they moved me into a group of people almost like being isolated from the outside world because of your latest test score because of a letter grade you got to be put with the “dumb people” as they called them. Their laughter stopped as if they were ashamed to be around me when I walked through the hallways. But I could hear the whispers as I walked it wasn’t mean comments it was sympathy. They same thing over and over again” I feel so sorry for him”. It never changes but I will reach my goals I don’t need a letter grade or a disorder to control my life it may control what I say sometimes or how I think but I will always be control of my destiny.
