Douglass began to learn how to read with his new mistress, but when her husband found out, he forbade it. This caused a great impact in Douglass’s life into learning how to read in one way or another.
The question is, have I ever had an impact like Douglass’s?
The answer is definitely yes. I was 14 years old when this happened. I sat down doing my homework, (I was in a private school), and I had my Facebook open on my iPod, when all of a sudden a new message arrived. It was a boy, we began talking through Facebook, we went to the same school, and one day we were going to talk to each other in school. We never did, but kept talking through Facebook, one day my mom realized what I was doing, and got mad at me for not telling her.
To make it short, (and I’m also saving it for the autobiography), my parents forbade me to speak with him. Well, indeed I had a great impact, and I ended up talking to him… in person.
In the end I learned my lesson, and I can tell you that I am never doing that again!
