Published Oct. 8, 2005

Q: Is it hard to say no to a friend?

Andrew Ferenc, 14, eighth grade, Inverness Middle School: "Not really because they are your friends. You should be able to trust them."

Allyson Rawls, 13, eighth grade, Inverness Middle School: "No, because I'm in control of myself and I don't have to do what someone else tells me to do unless it's a guardian or a parent."

Jake Morgan, 14, eighth grade, Inverness Middle School: "Yeah, because they are your friends and it's hard to say, "No, I don't want to do this.' "

Missy Shipp, 13, eighth grade, Inverness Middle School: "It depends on what it is, what the situation is."

Brad Smith, 13, eighth grade, Inverness Middle School: "It depends on the circumstances . . . if it would be harmful to you."
