Head girl Erma Marcellus from Cat Island

“Today Mr. Deal came to our school and he presented his life story to us. His stories were inspiring and
motivational. The thing that appeal to me the most from what he said was that we always have to listen to our
parents. As children that’s one of the things we don’t like, we think that we know more than our
parents and sometimes we think that we don’t share the same experiences as our parents: that’s
one of the things which stood out to me. Also he talked about being shot, the experience, that
was a bit too over whelming for me. I had to sit down because I couldn’t bring my mind to
comprehend all of what he been through. Having to go to jail, and all the things he went through
with his father. Those are things I personally don’t imagine, and if I was to have such an
experience, I think I’ll be overwhelm, I might have a mental breakdown. So, I applaud Mr. Deal for
being so strong in sharing his story with us.”
