Dueble was out for the day so we had a substitute. It was a beautiful spring day and I was very excited because our class was scheduled to take the bicycle safety test that morning.
If I passed, I would be able to ride my bike to school every day. You could literally see the school out of our front window. I grew up in Winnetka Illinois.
Winnetka is a suburb on the north shore near Chicago. We had beaches nearby, a big park across the street, a downtown area I could walk to if I wanted to get a hot dog, or buy some baseball cards.
It was an idyllic place where we all felt sheltered from the crime and violence that is so rampant in Chicago. We knew our neighbors and I hung around the neighborhood with my friends. The schools were good and opportunities for success were in abundance.

I don't remember faces, just a feeling of disorganization, intensity and terror. I fell to the ground and blacked out. The next thing I remember was crawling in the hallway by myself.
The hallway felt so empty.

I looked at it and saw that it was bleeding in a way I had never seen before.There are different kinds of friends. True and faithful friends, casual friends and false or fair-weather friends.
