Decision-Making – Make Positive Choices

Posted by Douglas Wick on Mon, May 5, 2014

Michael Cobb is a 16 year old playing basketball with his three buddies on a hot summer day.  Upon finishing their games, the group decides to pool their money and buy some wine at a liquor store.  Settling down in the shade they enjoy the breeze and cool down.  Soon one of Michael’s friend’s is angry.  Grady (Michael’s best friend) only had ten cents to provide for the wine.  The other friend, who’s now agitated, provided 50 cents. He feels Grady is taking more than his fair share.  A fight ensues.  Michael and his other friend break it up.  The friend who started the fight is still upset, and leaves.  The three others continue to drink.  They’re not alarmed by their friend’s departure.  Maybe he just needs some time to cool down they think. But this friend is still upset.  He returns, after locating his father’s gun at home.  He points the gun at Grady and fires twice.  Grady dies in Michael’s arms before an ambulance arrives.
