Strong and independent

by Anesia Bolling

You asked me to talk about someone who was strong and independent. Yet I could not think of anyone of the sorts. Everyone I know depends on one another to survive. If one person were to disappear then it would cause chaos. No one in my family is independent, not even me. In my opinion no one is {independent} because even Martin Luther King depended on his people to stand by his side to get his point across. Strength is a different story. I really don't focus on those around me enough to know who is strong or not. So I couldn’t even begin to write about that. Even me, I look strong from time to time, but I am weak like the last leaf on a tree in the beginning of fall. I depend on others for food, education and to help me survive. So, I don't know what to do because to me independence is overrated.
