Introduction

Dear Sir/Madam I am writing to you about the imminent expulsion of Brian Lyons. I was disappointed to hear that this decision had been reached and I urge you to reconsider your harsh judgment. Brian has had a tough start in life. Before he had even started school, both his parents died in a car crash that he was lucky to survive, but that was the last piece of luck he would encounter in a long time. He spent the following ten years in eight different homes, and with every move the sense of rejection grew. Are you deal out yet another rejection? Taking drugs is obviously a serious offence and it can't be tolerated in school. ...read more.

Brian has made mistakes in his life, but he is also someone with enormous potential to do good. At times he has been led astray by older students, but there have been countless occasions when he has shown incredible kindness towards me. There was one day when I was being bullied by a group of students; Brian found me crying in the toilets. He sat and talked through my issues and encouraged me to ignore the insults and to stand up to the bullies. He stood by me when few else would. It would have been easy for him to join in with the bullies, but he put his popularity on the line and showed the bullies that we can't win. ...read more.

Conclusion

Discipline is something everyone needs, but it needs to be measured and appropriate. Dwain Chambers is an example of someone who has done the same crime as Brian and has made a return to the sport he loves.

Have you never made a mistake in your life? I am not the only person that feels this way. My entire form have sympathy for Brian. We support him and want to stand by him at this time. A mistake has been made by one young person? Please don't make another one. Yours faithfully Brian's friend ...read more.
