Hello.
00:05
I am Lauda.
00:07
I've never been in a fight.
00:08
I don't believe in violence to solve problems.
00:11
I just feel like people should talk things through instead
00:13
of trying to physically harm the other person to get their
00:16
point across.
00:17
Right.
00:18
Come on, guys.
00:19
Come on.
00:20
So when I was in the sixth grade, there was a little girl who
00:23
wanted to fight me.
00:24
Why?
00:25
I don't know, there was no reason to fight me.
00:29
I had never spoken to her in my life.
00:31
She was in my class.
00:32
It was very cordial with everyone but she wanted to fight me
00:35
for no reason.
00:36
Literally one day she went up to me, she goes, I don't like you
00:39
Someone will fight you.
00:40
And I was like, that seems unnecessary.
00:43
And I asked her, I'm like, ok, um, why would you like to do that
00:48
She was like, oh, no, I don't like you and I was like, can we talk
00:51
about it?
00:51
Is there a way I could persuade you?
00:53
She was like, no, meet me after school.
00:55
So what did I do?
00:56
I snitched on her.
00:57
That's right.
00:58
I don't care.
00:59
I snitched on her.
00:59
You think I'm about to get to a fight.
01:01
Hell, no.
01:02
So I went up to the teacher and I was like, hi, excuse me, there's
01:05
this little girl who wants to fight me and the teacher was like
01:08
why, what did you do?
01:08
And I'm like, why did I have to do anything?
01:11
I didn't do anything.
01:12
She just wants to fight me for no reason.
01:14
She's like, there has to be a reason.
01:15
I'm like, no bitch, I don't know why she wants to fight me.
01:17
Can we can we get her so that she doesn't fight me after school
01:20
today, please.
01:21
So you know what she did, she gave us both detention, me and
01:25
the little girl and I'm like, why am I in detention?
01:28
What?
01:28
That doesn't make any sense.
01:31
So she sits both of us down and she's like, ok, let's talk about
01:34
this.
01:34
Let's get to know each other.
01:35
So we finally got to know each other.
01:37
We talked things through the way I like to do it.
01:39
And then at the end when, when detention was over, the little
01:43
girl comes up to me, she goes you cool.
01:45
And I was like, so then afterwards because me and the girl were
01:48
cool every time we were at lunch or in recess like I would look
01:52
at her and she'd be like, and I'd be like, thank God for communication
01:58
Have you guys ever been in a fight?
02:00
Let me know and if you haven't, that's cool.
02:02
Too because y'all don't need to be fighting.
02:03
Nobody.
02:04
Communication is key with everyone and don't let anyone disrespect
02:09
You talk about it.
02:10
That's Laura's lessons of the day.
02:14
You.
