School Rules For Fools
When I was in high school, there were many things I did not agree with – certain rules that I thought were too much to ask, too much to expect - things that were just plain unfair. For the entire duration of my high school career, “grown-ups” told me that one day, when I am all grown up, I will understand why those rules were important and what value they added to a child’s upbringing. Well, it’s been a while out of school for me now, and truth be told? No, I still don’t get it. I’m still waiting for the realization to dawn upon me as to why I was held captive in a disciplinary prison for 5 whole years of my life.
