For me, it has confirmed my thoughts. It has affirmed what I believe and stand up for. It has moved me and inspired me. It has not opened my eyes as I already was living in it's word. But I am so glad there are real people out there working to make a difference. A good difference and a necessary difference.

But does it, or should it stop there? Are you moved and inspired, confirmed or awaken? Will you take action? How and in what form? Or might you just return to your life and your duties with no or little change. I want to hear from REAL people out there. What will you do?

Me? I am fighting my battle for children and education the way I know how and through my means. As a child, I was given phenomenal opportunities by my family and my teachers despite all sorts of labeled learning disabilities. I am here to make a difference too. I will read more about the Freedom Writers Foundation and see how I can be involved. What is your fight? What is your battle?

I am a 12th grader and about to graduate in a little over a month. My 8th grade teacher read this book to our class and has us write journal entries much in the same way as Ms. G. We even called her Ms. P, short for Piety.

Sadly, I moved my 9th grade year and since then have lost touch with her, and a majority of the friends I made.

However; either from what I experienced from hearing the stories of how one teacher changed so many lives or from Ms. P herself, or a combination of the two, which I believe to be the answer, I will become a teacher myself.

I wish to try and make an impact, to try and change. As I see the trouble with the school system in the best possible way: I was a student.
