Guest Recent Grad Posted May 22, 2005 Report Share Posted May 22, 2005 I do not mean to stir up emotions, yet one can not help but realize what Harrison is becoming. I am a 19 year college student and a life long resident of Harrison. Harrison has a special place in my heart for i have live here my entire life. I went through the school system from the daycare center infront of the HS to Harrison High. I decided to become a teacher and come back to teach in my home town because in my mind i believed in no greater place. While at college i spoke very highly of this square mile town, its people, and some of its teachers. While back in town for summer break i realized things have changed from night to day. I would never look over my shoulder while walking around to the mini mall, or going to get something to eat a Ginas. But this time around things were different, there was a sense that things were no longer safe and i had to be on watch at all times. The kids are different and it only seems to be getting worse. My question is what is being done to make this town safer? This isn't critsim its just a question. What needs to be done to have Harrison back to the way it used to be though this seems unlikely something has to be done. I tell many people that i want to come back and teach here, and they respond by saying get as far away from Harrison as possible. This is a concern of mine because if i have children i would want them to grow up as i grew up in Harrison. But coming back has given me second thoughts and even second thoughts of teaching in our school system. This town is being over run by thugs, low lifes, and corrupt adults. Something has to be done to change the way Harrison is becoming. Thanks for the time. Recent Grad Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
