A memory and a lesson learned

From my journal, twenty years ago this week, in high school:

"Today, something happened and I have to tell someone. I was at the bus stop, watching this Girl across the street smashing Her pepsi-bottle on a rock, so I missed most of the conversation, but I turned around in time to see Maile on the verge of homicide. She was almost crying with fury. This little wise guy Michael was cringing on the ground. Terrence grabbed Her and prevented Her from killing Michael. Apparently Michael had chucked this major insult at Her about being “easy.” It really hurt Her.

Anyway, the whole thing scared me, cause I used to think it was funny to insult people like that, but now I see how much it really can hurt."
