The Assembly last Thursday was one Jerome High School will never forget. The beginning of the assembly started off different than what we are used to, with two guys walking in, one singing and the other rapping. Then he began to get to know us, slowly. What songs we liked, what we wanted to be when we grew up. Then the questions got more and more personal. He told a story in between each question to show he wasn’t targeting us. More and more people stood as each question was asked, and more and more people started to cry, some sobbing, others standing stoically with tears running down their cheeks. I was shocked, and I knew I wasn’t the only one. As I looked around at the teachers, their jaws dropped at the number of students standing for each question. With so many revelations and secrets revealed, this is one assembly we will never forget.
