I play for the Grady Falcons…….
Me and my team pulled our weight for years to make it to where we stand today. From 8 wins and 8 loses to the present 16 wins and no loses. It was a long fight, some came close but failed to strip us of undefeated record. Even the famous Brooklyn Studio Knights couldn’t keep up with the heat that we delivered. Now we sit on the second seed in the playoff, with all the hard work that every individual produced that made the team what it is. On our journey I couldn’t focus on too many things like work, school and baseball, so i cut out work and focused on taking our team all the way. I’m getting a break now because the playoffs are soon to come, but when the playoffs get here its back to the baseball monster that I am on that diamond. We don’t plan to stop at just a clinched division but to take home the gold, the real glory, The Championship. Baseball is not just a sport to me, it is a way of life, an oath, a code of conduct, when i am on the diamond I’m not mohammed i am……. i am….. i am a Falcon.
I think that it took a lot of support to keep the RHI open. A lot of organizations helped with donations.Without the people from the community we wouldnt be the RHI , because the community made the RHI. The community is the main reason why RHI is still here today for their 10th anniversary. The red hook community came together.
I feel like we shouldn’t have Parent Teacher Conference for 11th and 12th graders because I think that its irrelevant. Why are we having PTC ? We are almost young adults. I believe that we should have college privileges and our teachers should not call our parents whenever someone is bad or absent. When you are in college and you are absent, they dont call your parents. So why should juniors and seniors have to go through that? I know I am not in college yet, but I feel that I am mature enough to take responsibility for my actions. If parents wants to be involved in their child’s education , they should make time and go visit the teachers themselves. I think I can take responsibility for myself and I dont like being treated as a child while in school.
I was born and raised in a neighborhood called Red Hook. I lived across the street from where I live now. It wasn’t that bad living out here. I went to elementary school around the corner from my house. It was fun to be able to wake up a little late because school was so close. But it wasn’t always a great thing to have your school so close to home. So I was what you called a “chatter box” when I was little. Every time I would talk my house would be called. It sucked so bad because my mom was right around the corner. Uh, I hated getting in trouble like every week. But other than that living in Red Hook was fun. I had a lot of people looking out for me because of my dad and my brother knew so many people around the neighborhood. In the summer, camp was always fun too. I loved going to the pool and trips with all the other kids. Now I’m almost 17 and Red Hook seems like it changed so much because there’s nothing left for us teens to do. There’s not much to do around here any more unless you want to go to the pool or IKEA pier. I stay in my own world now, I’m older so I’m able to do more things. Red Hook will always be my home town but one day I’m going to move somewhere I never thought I could, meet new people, see new sights, and start a new life.
I’m a Seventeen year old girl in high school and i just want every one to like me. So i pretend to be someone i’m not just to be popular. I don’t know how to be myself because i’m so used to being someone i’m not. i’m a young women stuck in a world that is full of fairy tales. How is it that i cant be myself i have to pretend like i’m this girl that isn’t a part of me. I hate having to be someone that i’m not but i just cant brake this chain that i call me or my personality. My friends like me because i do what they do and i act just like them. i cant pretend anymore i want to brake the chain and become the REAL me but i can’t. My Family can’t understand why i have to do this and i partly don’t understand it either but this is not comfortable for me anymore. I want to be myself and still have people like me. I don’t think the REAL me will get the same looks and i don’t think that people will think that the REAL me is more amazing than the person i pretend to be.
My name is Tabitha Roman and I’m a part of the RHI Radio Group. The Black Power Mixtape was a great film. I thought that it was going to be really boring when we were planning on seeing it. But this film ended up giving me lots of insight on the civil rights movement in the 60′s and 70′s. My favorite part about the film was the old guy. He was too funny. He said “You can be black as a crow white as snow but if you don’t know or have the dough you cant go”. I love the fact that he said this because even he knows that to get somewhere in life skin color isn’t or shouldn’t be important. What should be important is getting your grades rights and getting an education to actually become something.
