Ms. Rebeccah Calloway
Myah always told me the truth. He was quick to let me know that my dancing was terrible and that the song "wow" by Beck is whack. He laughed a lot and smiled in a way that his entire face was just one big grin. He wanted to design clothing and own his own business. He loved the song "such ease" by lil Yachty, and he would ask me to play it during class at least once a day. He would argue with me about how much money is too much money to spend on a belt. He sang "change is gonna come" and swayed back and forth in his desk whenever Sam Cooke popped up on the classroom playlist. He was seventeen. He was good and kind. He was important. He was shot in the chest. He was left in a ditch.He did not deserve it.
My heart breaks for you and I cannot imagine the pain you feel. I know that God has planned great things and that Tamyah is a part of something bigger than we will ever be able to grasp.
My prayers are with you.
