JACKSONVILLE, Fla.-- Loud music and a classroom don't necessarily go together, but at Wolfson High School on Wednesday they cranked the volume all the way up to mark a year since Jordan Davis' last day of class.

Davis' legacy played throughout the halls of Wolfson. The teen, who was allegedly murdered during an argument over loud music was remembered in his favorite music class.

"The fact that Jordan died over an argument over loud music as his music teacher this has been a tough one to take," said his teacher Cristina Ledford.

Students took in the teen's favorite tracks during time to reflect on happier days with their fallen friend but also time to share with each other how much they miss him.

"It was hard knowing that one of the only friends I had in this classroom is gone and I'll never have another conversation with my homeboy ever again," said classmate Terrence Harris.

For Davis' father, Ron Davis, reuniting with his son's peers eases the sting of a painful anniversary.

"I see the kids today and I see a lot of Jordans. As a parent you look at other kids and you see a lot of your kid," he said. "It was absolutely a healing experience."

For the students, it was a solemn reminder not to take each other, their music, or their lives for granted.

"Live every day like your last," said Harris.

Maybe people should discuss the new game of "knockout" going around in gun free cities now. Bunch of black kids pick a lone target and attack him/her trying to knock them out in one punch. Crank up the music is ok for black people to protest the shooting wonder how they would like it though if white people started cranking up music they don't like starting a noise war about it. Then see who gets the ticket for disturbing the peace and disrupting the public.

This is just a case of the school system sanctioning a bunch of teens behaving as thugs. The only problem with todays children is that they have no trianing nor moral guidance. They don't get it from their parents and they certainly don't get it from government schools.
