Re: “Fall Books Special: Chicago's Life Story

I attended school with Alvin Palmer. He was smaller than most of the other senior boys but had started to grow taller. He carried a pocket watch, I think to set himself apart, make himself feel special. When he was murdered, young men both black and white at Farragut HS wanted to go looking for the ones that had killed him. Our principal, Mr. McBride called an assembly and told us not to enter into conflict and violence. We were all so very sad. It was before the time of calling in counselors when some trauma happened at school. At our graduation, Alvin was acknowledged and sympathy extended to his parents. I will never forget that this happened and no one was punished for it.
