Wants

I want to know

I want to know your heart
that is closely guarded and protected
from the insincere and indifferent
I see that you are angered
by people being unfair with you
with the ignorance of others
even at yourself at times too

I want to know your mind
I have yet to discover
what lies inside
your thoughts, feelings, stories
even the most embarrassing ones
I won’t get tired of all of it
I long to listen to your voice
and in those times words need not to be said

I want to know your soul
where your eyes wander
as a smile escapes you
I ache to know where
you are truly happy
because all i ever want
is you
 

            to be happy

                        to be appreciated

                                         to be loved.

When Good People Do Nothing: The Appalling Story of South Carolina’s Prisons

In two months, America will observe the 50th anniversary of one of its most dubious moments. On March 13, 1964, Catherine “Kitty” Genovese was brutally murdered in Queens, New York. What made her case infamouslegendary, even—was that nobody responded to her cries for help. “Please help me, please help me!” she cried, over and over, and at least 38 people in her neighborhood who heard those cries did nothing to help her. They did not call the police. They did not come to comfort her. They did not, they later said, want to get involved. “When good people do nothing” is a timeless moral question, indeed.

One could say the same thing about the citizens of the state of South Carolina, who stand condemned today by one of their own. On Wednesday, in one of the most wrenching opinions you will ever read, a state judge in Columbia ruled that South Carolina prison officials were culpable of pervasive, systemic, unremitting violations of the state’s constitution by abusing and neglecting mentally ill inmates. The judge, Michael Baxley, a decorated former legislator, called it the “most troubling” case he ever had seen and I cannot disagree. Read the ruling. It’s heartbreaking.

The evidence is now sadly familiar to anyone who follows these cases: South Carolina today mistreats these ill people without any evident traces of remorse.  Even though there are few disputed material issues of law or fact in the case, even though the judge implored the state to take responsibility for its conduct, South Carolina declared before the sun had set Wednesday that it would appeal the ruling—and thus likely doom the inmates to years more abuse and neglect. That’s not just “deliberate indifference,” the applicable legal standard in these prison abuse cases. That is immoral.

Oh how much I love our chapter. Being in DECA is such a great experience. Meeting new people bonding with other members in the chapter acting like a family. Norcal CDC was where it all began. It was my first time going on the trip and i didn’t know anyone besides a few people people. By the end of the trip I got to know everyone. State CDC was something different. We were a bigger group and there was twice as many people that attended state than norcal. I learned a lot of new things. From presenting a role play in front of a judge to learning more about DECA. I do not regret going on any of the trips. These two DECA trips are most def the highlight of my sophomore year. I cannot wait for next years trips. San Leandro High School DECA<3
