I was watching the movie "The Freedom Writers" the other night on HBO. The movie is based on the writings of the students from Woodrow Wilson High School in LA. Most of these students are members of local gangs "destined" to be a menace society and just die unnoticed. They were all in the English class of young Ms. Gruwell, a first year teacher filled with dreams of being the best teacher and produce students she can be proud of. What she found was one uphill battle after another, but that did not stop her. This is her dream and she will make it happen.
...Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go. Joshua 1:9
