An Abnormally Silent Youth (story #13)

Today I witnessed something strange. It was the momentary glimpse I got of a normally mischievous child behaving properly and without reproof. This boy is able to disrupt a whole class with his constant fun, shenanigan’s, and chatter. Before today I have seen him switch in the blink of an eye from his jovial mood, to his serious or angry mood. The change is startling to the casual observer, who quickly assumes on first impressions that this wild child can never settle down.

Today at school the seniors graduated. I attended the graduation for a friend. The wild youth of whom I have acquainted you, had been selected by the teacher to be color guard. I watched as the boy solemnly walked down the aisle carrying the American Flag. Not a smile stole from his mouth. He marched unperturbably on, intent upon his solemn duty. When it came time to stop walking, he did so abruptly almost with a little hop. He posted the colors and proceeded to walk back, never altering in countenance except to deepen his frown, and truly it was a stunning sight to behold.

My life vision is to turn everything into an artistic version of itself, living a life that allows me to be the person God made me to be, and do my best work.

They will show you a reflection of your future." - a wise person.
