James Satch Sullinger
(Sociology teacher and Basketball Coach)
-This is my favorite paragraph because it took a lot for James to open up to me and tell me about his past and I thought that was very kind of him to do that for my interview plus I think this is the best paragraph in the writing. There are people who don't like to share there past with others but James did and what I want to share with the class is that is not easy telling your stories to other people but James did.
-"My mom had me afraid of doing anything because I so was much bigger than everybody. So she always told me that people would have jumped me. If I fight with someone it won’t be just one person it would be a whole group. Or they would have a weapon to take me down. She really had me afraid to do anything and I had lost my hair from holding stuff in…. and my nerves were about to kill me you know… and ahh... I had big bold spots on my head. She took me to a psychiatrist when I was a kid like eighth grade, ninth grade years. The psychiatrist told my mom I was holding too many issues to myself… so he told her to let me be free mentally and to let me do whatever I wanted to do. You know my mom was always telling me to keep everything to myself. But when she was told to let me go she did….. People use to take my money and I wouldn’t say anything to them…and people would take this and that and I still wouldn’t say anything to them. After the doctor told my mom to let me go and I wouldn’t get in trouble I use to go knock people out. Than my hair came back and it felt good…[ laughs]"
