Dear Mr. Stroneiham,

      I understand that what I did to you was very wrong. And I'm very sorry for wiping dirt on your shoes. I know it was very unprofessional of me and I should not have done that, but I only did it because I felt that you were not being fair.

      I thought that it was my right to stand up. I thought that it was not fiar of you to treat Andrew differently than one of us just because he is colored.

      But, now I am just asking for forgiveness to get my job back. I need to help my father out to provide for the people in my household. There are 7 people living in my house i need to help my father provide for all. So can you please let me have my job back and I am very sorry.
