Joseph has spent 15 years in primary 1. Teachers say it is impossible for him to graduate because he always comes last. His teachers claim he forgets everything immediately he's taught. Joseph states that when he is in class, he gets dream-like hallucinations which make him forget everything. His classmates from previous years have graduated, and others even become his teachers, yet he is still in the same class. Due to his dwarfism, you might not realize he's 21 years old. Joseph is still optimistic about graduating one day and becoming a president. The sad part is the bullies call him "Old Man" so much that he can literally remember it. He deserves more respect.

Jholie Moussa, a 16-year-old African American girl, went missing in 2018. For two weeks, the police insisted that she left of her own free will, a run away. No further action was taken. Her body was later found in the woods. This is one example of hundreds of cases of black kids going missing and not much being done to address the case. Additionally, the press is more likely to highlight cases of white children going missing than black kids. Even though African-Americans making up significantly less of the US population than white people, black kids are much more likely to go missing than their white counterparts. What do you think?
