Michael sat behind me in homeroom and his locker was next to mine. We had a special relationship that was "secret". He was my "protector". He and I joked & laughed in homeroom and nodded at each other in the hallway; afterall, his type & my type would never speak to each other...ever! He often overheard the cruel comments that came my way in the hallways and always told me anytime I needed help or needed someone "taken out" just let him know! (Not to worry, I knew what he meant by "taken out"). I'll never forget the day it was announced that Michael wouldn't be coming back to homeroom; no one else seemed upset but me!
I pray for Michael every time I see the TV producer's name "Michael Mann" on TV shows (and there's a lot of them!) I still believe in some special way he's my "protector" and I'll continue to remember him!
