The Iraqi secret police also sat me down and kicked me in the face until I were to spill information, this broke my jaw as well as my nose. They pulled my hands back so forcefully my wrist and shoulder got dislocated, and finally when they ran out of options they waterboarded me until near death and brought me up to puncture through my eardrum with a needle. I was disoriented, in pain, and near death. Luckily, word got out to my base and they sent rescue crews looking for me only to find the burnt down plane and my co-pilot but after almost a week of torture and lack of sleep I was found by the United States Navy SEALS. I was brought to base to speak about my time in jail.
I myself have experienced this where I used to be cautious with letting my tongue free, but now that I have set it free, nothing can stop me from proclaiming my beliefs. I agree that “Wild tongues can’t be tamed, they can only be cut out.”(374) but I also believed that even when cut out, they will never be silenced. Once a tongue is set wild, it can only grow stronger and become more

On one never-to-be-forgotten night in October of 2014, my family had a plan to go to one of the scariest, terrifying, and craziest haunted places in America, Eastern State Penitentiary in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I was nervous to go, but my parents convinced me to go. Before we left, my parents made me take the dog out, clean my room, and take the trash out, I was already in a bad mood before we even took off to go. While on the way there, I asked my parents, “Do you think an eleven year old boy should be going here?” “It’s too late for you to be pleading to go back now.” My Mom replied. I was terrified, crawling up the walls trying to go back home.
I hit rock bottom - I left my parents at 15 and ran away. At 18 my daily routine was to wake up and get high. At 20 I was depressed and wanted to commit suicide. But I didn’t; I got help. There are so many excuses you can make up on why you do meth, but there isn’t one.
Fear at night... After the Holocaust I still walk around fearing the harmful, painful, thoughts of my shadow. I forgot who I was, life would never be the same. At night I cried of the thought of fire I seen for so many years, As if I was in hell looking into the Devil 's eyes.

I have held my head up and I have taken the high road each and every time that I have been lashed at or belittled or downright demeaned. I did this not because I feel it is what I deserve, but because I recognize that although I can 't change the action, I can choose how I handle it. I know my worth and I no longer look for it in the people and the city that tried to sentence me to a life of misery solely because I lost my way a long time ago. I am a damn good person and I won 't grant anyone the power to make me loose sight of that. All in all, coming back home has opened my eyes to a lot and has left me with lessons I could have only learned in doing so.
By this time, I was working at Sears at Northridge Mall in the clothing department, where Xavier would occasionally come over to see me. On one of my days off of work, Xavier came over to the house in the evening, where he encountered the wrath of father. My dad yelled, “Get out of here you punk!” and leaped after him and kicked him down the street and told him to never come around the house again. I was peeking out my bedroom window, when my father stomped into my room, outraged he slammed the door behind him and took off his belt and began to hit me repeatedly. I cried the entire night; I was embarrassed to go to school the next day and didn’t know what I was going to tell Xavier.
And just as easy as it was to get away with stuff, it was easier to get into more trouble. I began school at the age of three; I don’t remember any of it but according to my mother I was a very smart girl and had already learned how to read and somewhat write, so the school system sent me to first grade, I was always the youngest yet taller kid in the classroom.
