What is shameful for me is that I could not tell anyone but very little about my years in school 1-12. I don't know if I don't remember from my 2 mini strokes or if I blanked it out because those were the worse days of my life and I don't want to remember them. Elementary school wasn't bad until my 6th Grade with old Alma Bluebaum her and her flyswat put so many bruises on my shoulders and arms and some would laugh in the class when she hit me. I know that I was not the best student but there was no reason why she always picked on me but she did. May she rest in peace I did forgive but I can't forget the way she treated me. Then Jr High & High that's when things really started going south people that I didn't go to elementary school with started making fun of me for my clothes not being in style or for not having money like some of them did. But not one of all of my classmates from Charles Russell ever made fun of me.I was so glad when I got my diplomas from Blazer and said I would never step foot into another classroom. After my days in the Army and my discharge I was eligible for the Old GI Bill. I did end taking about 2 or 3 classes on base from Park College on my offtime. I made 2 A's and 1B even surprised myself on those. I enrolled Marshall University in Fall of 79 and I received credit for my basic training and military experience so I was never classified as a freshman in College I received my BS degree in Criminal Justice in 1983 and started as a Police Officer at Marshall U. I wanted more action than a University P.O. so I moved to Columbia,S.C. in 1987 and was hired by The Richland County Sheriff's Department as a deputy sheriff. I worked the road almost a year before I was sent to the S.C. Police Academy. I had already helped arrest a murder suspect, been involved in my first shooting and had been involved in patrol car accident where the tierod broke while crossing a bridge and the car flipped on it's side and hit the bridge. Placing me in the hospital for 2 weeks and recover. So my 22 years total in law enforcement was the best time of my life and I was sorry it had to end with 2 mini-strokes. But my Lord has seen me through a lot in my life and I'm still surviving. I'll post some pics so people will know what I look like now. I had a wild hair in one of them and you'll be able to guess which with no problem.
