I'm Haley and my best friend is Delaney. We had this perfect idea to get some new items. In March 2005 we took one thing for about $2. A week later, we took about $50 worth of makeup. The dext day, we had the guts to go back and take $40 more dollers worth of makeup. We walked out of Wal-Mart just like happy camerpers without even knowing wat was in front of us. I had Delaney's purse with everything in it. Two HUGE security guys came after us and grabbed us. We were both soo scared. One told me to give him back his muchindise but i yelled back at him to get off of me without even thinking he was a piece of fuzz (cop). We sat in the security room for about 2 hours. We saw all the screens for the cameras, and wow they watch those cameras like an animal hunting their prey! Me and Delaney can't ever go back to Wal-Mart. If we are even in the parking lot they can have cops out and take us away in handcuffs. We got 10 hours of community service and some counceling. We had to pay Wal-Mart $100 plus what we took. I lost my spring break and didn't do anything for the longest time. We are both in deep...still...and are just finishing our community service stuff. It was a big thing and at only 13 years old we have a record for theft...not too good!!

Hi, my name is Naomi and I have done drugs from the time I was 13. I am now 16 and I have been clean for 11 months. But before I stopped drugs I was wild. I went on the run like 4 times and every time did drugs. My main drugs were Meth and Weed. Although I did every drug, I always had meth and weed. I started weed when I was 13 then moved on to meth. I was hooked the first time I did both. I did not know I was hooked until it was too late and I was in jail for the third time and going to rehab. It sucked, but after 34 days in jail 30 days in rehab I learned drugs are a waste of time. Now that I have have told you a little of my life hopefully I help someone make a better choice then I did.
Back when I was in 6th grade, I was playing volleyball in the morning with some of my friends. My friends started to leave and a big group of girls surrounded me. One of the girls kept asking me if I had been talking about them. I kept telling them no, but I guess they didn't believe me because all of the sudden one of the girls punched me in the cheek. There were no teachers around, so no one saw what happened. I went to the office and reported what the girls had done. The girl who punched me was suspended for three days. After that, all of her friends kept giving me dirty looks and acting like they were going to beat me up. Then when the girl came back, she was always looking at me. I started going straight to my classes because I was scared. After a while she stopped giving me dirty looks and left me alone." Threatening, intimidation, and assault are against the law and against school policy. Talk to an adult that you can trust if these things are happening to you or to someone you know.
