Magician Joseph Young Amazes and Encourages

 

Joseph Young – Unique and Entertaining

Joseph Young works with elementary school students in making objects disappear. He told about 700 fifth graders at the J.W. Adams Combined School in Virginia, “It’s your job to do the magic. The magic of making cigarettes, drugs and alcohol disappear.”

 

The show was a part of the Drug Abuse Resistance Education (?DARE?)  program. Each Wise County school was represented at the assembly, which was held at J.W. Adams Combined School.

 

Mr. Young performs as “The Amazing Joseph Young,” sounds like a show to catch.  He performs an act in which Rubik?s Cubes disappear, reappear and grow, all to a musical theme.  According to the article in the Coal Field News, Mr. Young?s show went beyond manipulating the incredibly frustrating puzzle pieces.  He invited the law enforcement officers and students to the stage to help.

 

While the show had a light-hearted feel, it included Mr. Young?s recounting the tragic deaths of two teens.  After drinking and drugging, the teens were involved in a fatal accident. 

 

The show ended on an up-beat, however.  Mr. Young performed the disappearing bottle (into a paper bag) and produced treats for the audience.  “I’m not just a magician,” he said, “I am a school assembly educator.”

 

Excellent job Mr. Young!  You are now officially on our Good Guy List.  Thanks for making us all look good.
