REAL. LIFE. Voices
Every year, Rosey Comfort takes her advanced creative writing class from Westview High School to the REAL. LIFE. Exhibit. After experiencing the exhibit as a group, the students separate and go back to a place that particularly touched them, and they immerse themselves in that place, taking in the faces, the voices, the sounds, the textures, and the smells. Then they reach into themselves and do what many of us cannot do—they find the words to voice their feelings, thoughts, and insights.
They write about their sadness, their anger, their shock, their guilt—and their resolve to do something about what they have experienced.
Read excerpts from some of the 47 entries the class compiled into a book.
