Growing the Voices of Our Future
Don’t let your past define your future

Delucca Rolle is a 15-year-old teen who was a victim of police brutality three months ago.
Late last month he was arrested for being in a stolen car and resisting arrest without violence. I feel like his previous incident with the police shouldn’t have anything to do with his most recent arrest. But also I feel like him resisting arrest could be because of the way the police treated him the first time.
Hopefully, this was a lesson for him and hopefully he doesn’t have another bad encounter with law enforcement.
I also think he should watch the crowd he hangs with and stay out of trouble.

On July 6th, I attended my grandparents’ 50th wedding anniversary! That’s a long time to be married.
I believe a family is a bond that should not be broken by any means.
My family is one of the things that means the most to me. I have learned so much from my grandparents about love, family, and commitment. The amount of time they have been married has taught me to work hard and never give up.
I really enjoyed spending time and celebrating with my family. While attending my grandparents’ event, I had the opportunity to see my cousins, aunts, uncles, and many of my family’s friends.

Over the weekend my family and I watched dozens of loggerhead and leatherback baby sea turtles find their way to the ocean. We learned a lot about these cute little creatures from the Broward County Sea Turtle Conservation Program. One sad fact is that only 1 in about 1,000 baby sea turtles will reach adulthood.
Caution: If you see a mommy sea turtle laying eggs or any hatchlings while you’re at the beach, please do not disturb them.
