School Fights

I had to break up a fight in school today. Most of the fights I have had to break up have been between two girls. Some teachers will not step in between two females fighting because they say that girls do not care whom they hit.

I just cannot stand aside and do nothing. So far, I have been lucky I guess.

I wish our students would realize how much they cheat themselves when they mess up like this. They doom themselves and those around them.

The girls were both suspended. One more step to a wasted life.
