Okay. The title is inaccurate. We are going to die, all of us, eventually. I accept that. But let me state something I’m pretty damn sure of: if there is some sort of biological/chemical attack on the US, it will NOT be on a suburb in New Jersey (and sure as hell not on a shitty high school in said suburb), and locking up the doors and hiding in ‘low-ventilation’ areas isn’t gonna save you.
AFAIK, the cold war ended, umm…forty some years ago? Jesus, if someone DOES realease, like, smallpox into the philly region, we’re not going to know right away. So when we find out, let’s go hide in the wrestling room or the old auditorium or the new science labs which aren’t, like, held together by masking tape? IT WILL NOT HELP. Having a guidance counselor available to talk about our feelings WILL NOT HELP. Taking up half of first period tomorrow when I COULD be being productive, since I have over a hundred pages of art research due in, like, a month which I cannot get an extension on (damn external assesments…), I really, REALLY don’t want to waste half of art class to reinvent cold-war ‘kiss your ass goodbye’ drills.
Grrrr. Your job as the school is to TEACH us. NOT to fill the idiotic masses with even more baseless fears than are already out there. :mad:
