I've never been in a fight.
I don't believe in violence to solve problems.
I just feel like people should talk things through instead
of trying to physically harm the other person to get their
So when I was in the sixth grade, there was a little girl who
I don't know, there was no reason to fight me.
I had never spoken to her in my life.
She was in my class.
It was very cordial with everyone but she wanted to fight me
Literally one day she went up to me, she goes, I don't like you
Someone will fight you.
And I was like, that seems unnecessary.
And I asked her, I'm like, ok, um, why would you like to do that
She was like, oh, no, I don't like you and I was like, can we talk
Is there a way I could persuade you?
She was like, no, meet me after school.
You think I'm about to get to a fight.
So I went up to the teacher and I was like, hi, excuse me, there's
this little girl who wants to fight me and the teacher was like
why, what did you do?
And I'm like, why did I have to do anything?
I didn't do anything.
She just wants to fight me for no reason.
She's like, there has to be a reason.
I'm like, no bitch, I don't know why she wants to fight me.
Can we can we get her so that she doesn't fight me after school
So you know what she did, she gave us both detention, me and
the little girl and I'm like, why am I in detention?
That doesn't make any sense.
So she sits both of us down and she's like, ok, let's talk about
Let's get to know each other.
So we finally got to know each other.
We talked things through the way I like to do it.
And then at the end when, when detention was over, the little
girl comes up to me, she goes you cool.
And I was like, so then afterwards because me and the girl were
cool every time we were at lunch or in recess like I would look
at her and she'd be like, and I'd be like, thank God for communication
Have you guys ever been in a fight?
Let me know and if you haven't, that's cool.
Too because y'all don't need to be fighting.
Communication is key with everyone and don't let anyone disrespect
That's Laura's lessons of the day.
