a few of my faves » haley james scott » one tree hill Tell the truth. So I would be a hypocrite if I stood up here and didn’t tell you the truth, right? Look, the truth is I love teaching all of you and I’m proud of you. But, I did what any good teacher would do when I published Sam’s essay in the school paper. It was a powerful piece of writing. It was honest and naked and real and everything your writing should be and by the look on Prinicpal Rimkus’ face, I should probably say goodbye. Just try to remember, it’s too early for you to start playing the game, hell, it’s too early for me to start playing the game. Stand up for what you believe in. The truth matters, so tell it, no matter what.
