Remembering by
Barbara Junior Mixson

I was in the second grade. I don't remember much of my early years. I do remember at one school (either 1st or 2nd grade) the teacher wanted me to eat the free breakfast given to the "poor kids" because I was so skinny, I guess she thought we were poor and I came to school without eating breakfast. I refused to get in line to the cafeteria and I started crying.  She wrote a note home to mom and I was so embarrassed, I didn't want to go back to school.
