John Marsden Writing Topic #384
Write about a time when you should have spoken out but didn’t**
When I was in year 11 (I think year 11) a friend of mine had taken the Department of Education to court, to try and receive compensation for injuries that were inflicted on her by a rogue bull in an agriculture class two years earlier.
It was the hot topic in my classes and everyone was constantly talking about it and making fun of her and the situation. While I did stand up for her and quite passionately, I feel that I didn’t stand up or spoke out for her enough.
