2: Hey, I am Shayne Ivey and I am 16 years old, from a small town up in New Hampshire. When I was about 10 years old in the 4th grade, i started becomming a trouble. All i did up untril 7th was cause trouble and i was in the principles office all the time. At the end of my 6th grade year and going into my 7th grade year, i went through a great depression, I stopped talking to everysingle friend that i had, so I was constantly alone, and I wore all black. This went on for about 6 months, until I finally got to a point where I felt like I would exploid, so I went back to all my old friends (who were now all skate boarders) and started hanging out with them again, and it was a blast. Everyday after school we'd skate on the streets and smoke cigerrettes, we had life by the short and curlys, we were all young and had no responsiblities except to chill and have fun, those were the days. . When i was almost 15, I moved to Christiansburg VA.
3: It was here in VA that i met an entirely new group of friends. We all hung out togethor every single weekend , this was while i was currently on the track team, and i was one of the key distance runners. As time went on , I started doing cross country and i got pretty heavy into that, I was on the top 5 fastest people, .
4: God is good, god is great, Love don't hate DOn't discriminate deteriate eliminate anything unless its everthing get down to earth or dont whats it worth just chill in the sky with the stars in my eyes i love the great tasty pie but why must I die no i'll live forever in heaven the world was created.....in seven
5: The great big sky and the sun too lets travel high with trees purple, green and blue
6: Swallowing stones is a great book about a boy who has a great life with all teenager could ask for. Then one day he makes the biggest mistake of his life by firing a gun up into the air....for the bullet traveled from the gun, to a guy working on the roof of his head. Michael ended up killing a father/husband of a wife and a daughter. Although the police can't catch Michael, he is trapped in his own internal prison of guilt throughout the entire book
7: Dear Briggs, You are trying to get Steve killed or put behind bars. Steve is a human being, not a pig or a Cow but human beings such as you are the same, a human being. You are no higher then Steve in any way, you are not above him or any one else, you and all people are equally the same. Unless you were some sort of God or has some greater power than men do, you can not decide the fate of another human being. Humans do not rule over humans, God rules over humans. It doesn’t mater if the kid killed 100 people, that does not give you the right to choose what happens to him. Some pennies are shiny and new while other pennies are dirty and old, but that does not matter all pennies are still worth 1 cent no matter what. Some people are rich, some are poor, some are white, some are black, some are Muslims, some are Christians, some do drugs, some kill…We are all still people Briggs, what we do does not change that. So I say unto you that by controlling Steve’s fate the way you want as though you are above him is greater then any crime, you are no god but a worthless person like the rest of us, so lets all drop the case and let it be, lets all drop everything and let it be lets all go on with our own lives and concentrate on what we are going to do with ourselves not other people, only if we are going to help someone else should we interfere with there lives, it does not matter what Steve has done, back off Briggs, Back off Courtroom, Back off world…. Hope you have a nice day! Sincerely Shayne Ivey
8: Briggs is a selfish, ignorant jerk he is the father of pride, he likes to be right, lock people behind bars, and win
9: Steve+bird -innocent -caged for no reason -causes no harm for the earth | Differences -Steve has arms, bird has wings -steve has nose, bird has beak -steve has hair, bird has fethers -steve can walk, bird can fly
10: My 10th grade year was pretty good as a whole. I did cross country and indoor track and got many metals for each. I also discovered many new friends nad such this year, and i got my first job, I could have done better in school though. I hope you now understand The Art Of Language.
