From the Heart of a Child: Michael Ward's letter to the Judiciary Committee


My name is Michael Ward, The truancy law made me feel scared always now… scared that something bad is gonna happen to us.
My family shouldn't have to be afraid anymore. I'm still nervous wondering what will happen next to my friends that don't know how to fight like my Mom.
I wish I could be born again without any sickness so I wouldn't bring the cops to our home.
I lost my friends and my teachers that I love it isn't fair.  I wish this law would stop hurting us and my friends.
Why do we have to be punished like criminals?  I don’t understand we’re just kids.
I loved going to school.  Now, it isn't safe for me and my little brother to be there.  
I’m so glad my Mom is strong and loves us so much she teaches us at home in our FREEDOM HOME SCHOOL now.
I’m happy again.  When my Mom told me changes we happening to the bad law I wanted to leap for joy!
My Mom told me I am very special and God made me perfect with my asthma and everything and I feel proud knowing that.
I don’t ever want to go back to public school since this law is still around.
Thank you for caring about us.  It would be great if we had a super hero like Optimus Prime he could stomp this law deep into the ground So it could never come back and hurt us ever again.
