Other schools in our district have taken to calling us trash, talking garbage on us, and just all around not really liking us. However, sometimes at our lowest points, we also think that we are nothing special. In order for other schools to even think about respecting us, we need to start having respect for ourselves. If we respect ourselves than others will respect us too. We need to keep having positive thoughts, and just take in all of the negative comments and throw them in the actual trash.
