His family did not have any water in their home. Gregory explained how he used to go to
Michael wasn’t a born ready basketball player that everyone thought he was because of his success in the NBA. One of Michael’s coaches once said, “Jordan, interestingly, was not a “Natural” basketball player” (Johnson).

In contrast to not making the basketball team for his high school, Jordan worked hard everyday to get better and use the athleticism god had given him.

When Len decided that he was going to go to school and shoot people and commit suicide, I believe he did this because he had a mental disorder, a bad homelife, and he wanted to make a point. The reason why I think that Len was trying to make a point is because he wrote "stop the violence" in his own blood on the

Bulling in schools seems to be a touchy subject these days. It was as well when I was in high school. I can recall one brief time in school when I was bullied, because of what I had or did not have.

At that time growing up my family did not have much money so we could not afford nice things in particular new clothes.
