I don't often blog current events because ... well... I just don't. As it seems many of my blogging friends are in a slump, I'm doing what I can to keep mine going (for me and, of course, for you) - I don't really have much these days that I feel like writing about, especially with the PSH's on my mind 24/7.
I heard a story on KQ this morning that shocked and awed me; completely worth sharing and I would love to hear what people think about it.
Imagine yourself at your High School graduation; your name is called, you walk up on stage... this is a huge moment in your life! You're excited, you're proud, you're happy. You look out in the crowd point to your friends thinking Hey, look at us, we did it, yo! You see your mom and blow her a kiss to acknowledge the fact that she must have done something right because here you are, about to graduate! Moments later the superintendent tells you to return to your seat because today you won't be getting your diploma.
"There's no fooling around up here" she says to you...
REALLY?! Fooling around?!
This happened to a kid, Justin Denney of Maine, last week. Many other graduates were also denied their diplomas for goofing around - throwing around beach balls and such - which I can almost understand, beach balls at a graduation is kind of unnecessary. I, personally, find it hard to believe that waving at friends and blowing your MOTHER a kiss is fooling around! Its a proud fucking moment in any kids life, prim and proper hardly applies to being handed a diploma.
You can read the Fox News article here for more details.
The assistant superintendent said Justin will get his diploma, but how special will that be for him... You only have one chance to walk up on stage and receive your diploma; talk about a bittersweet moment.
I would be quite upset... to say the least!
