My Buddy Taish is Somebody to Go To

by Austin (Boss) Elliott

We are going to the elementary school tomorrow to introduce ourselves, creating what we’re calling Oski-Generation. Hopefully what we do in the elementary school goes as planned, and I hope that everybody participates in what we’re doing as a class.

My buddy Taish is second-guessing himself about it because nobody was paying attention (when we were planning). He wants this to work for the benefit of our class. If this goes as planned then we’ll achieve something from this, either if it’s happiness or being a good leader to our young youth.

If we can be good leaders the youth will learn how to be respectful and encourage others, and to treat people how they would want to be treated. It’s always good to show our youth that anything can happen when they show respect; it will take them places.

As a fellow friend of Taish Desnomie, he inspired me to eat right and workout. He is a great leader to look up to. He shows care to people who are in need, and he never gives up on you. If there is a problem, my buddy Taish is somebody to go to.

  1. These are important thoughts. So good to hear from a young person. You are someone to look up to as well because of your words here. Always remember that. (please share a hug with Sheena and Alma from me)
