"Charles's Freedom" Descriptive Essay About A Person

500 words - 2 pages

My refrigerator at home displays a colorful portrait of a Christmas bell given to me by a sixth grader by the name of Charles. On the back of the portrait is written, "You are the best sub ever." I discovered the picture on my desk on the last day of substituting for that class. I had been there a week. A week in which Charles made the only friend he had ever known.As the children arrive at school, Charles is the doormat in which they wipe their feet. "Ooh, Charles touched me," was only one of the demeaning remarks the other children hurled at him. Boys pulled hilarious pranks on girls by ...view middle of the document...

More importantly Charles knew I meant it.But unlike the typical sixth grade boy, Charles did not seek vengence upon his enemies. His eyes conveyed only apathy toward the cruel statements. His body never even flinched in reaction to the physical bullying. His head never flopped downward in humiliation. He made no attempt to plea his case or win the battle.Charles is like a saint. Through extreme persecution he never loses his sense of who he is or what he stands for. He knows these things will soon pass;like the wind, the cruelty and the persecution may be strong at times, but are surely to die down. He is empowered by a spirit of peace and longsuffering that enables him to survive the circumstances in which he has been placed. He just spreads his wings and flies to the place of utopia that he has discovered. A place I have often wondered if he ever really returns.Charles claims," I was the best sub ever." Undeniably he found something in me that touched him in a way he had never felt. My disciplinary threats toward the children that taunted him meant more to Charles than words on a picture could ever express. The picture he left on my desk was simply an attempt to relay his gratitude. Silently a bond between Charles and I had taken place; one I hope will remain with Charles until his battles are over.
