Someone in a local HS group shared this with me. Thought it was funny. Reminds me of stories my dad used to tell. Reminds me of elementary school (back when we got out for deer season rather than spring break, shoes were optional, paddlings were mandatory ... ah, those were the days!)

HIGH SCHOOL -- 1957 vs. 2007--

Scenario 1:

Jack goes quail hunting before school and then pulls into the school parking
lot with his shotgun in his truck's gun rack.

1957 - Vice Principal comes over, looks at Jack's shotgun, goes to his car
and gets his shotgun to show Jack.

2007 - School goes into lock down, FBI called, Jack hauled off to jail and
never sees his truck or gun again. Counselors called in for traumatized
students and teachers.



Scenario 2:

Johnny and Mark get into a fist fight after school.

1957 - Crowd gathers. Mark wins. Johnny and Mark shake hands and end up
buddies.

2007 - Police called and SWAT team arrives -- they arrest both Johnny and
Mark. They are both charged them with assault and both expelled even though
Johnny started it



Scenario 3:

Jeffrey will not be still in class, he disrupts other students.

1957 - Jeffrey sent to the Principal's office and given a good paddling by
the Principal. He then returns to class, sits still and does not disrupt
class again.

2007 - Jeffrey is given huge doses of Ritalin. He becomes a zombie. He is
then tested for ADD. The school gets extra money from the state because
Jeffrey has a disability.



Scenario 4:

Billy breaks a window in his neighbor's car and his Dad gives him a whipping
with his belt.

1957 - Billy is more careful next time, grows up normal, goes to college and
becomes a successful businessman.

2007 - Billy's dad is arrested for child abuse. Billy is removed to foster
care and joins a gang. The state psychologist is told by Billy's sister that
she remembers being abused herself and their dad goes to prison. Billy's mom
has an affair with the psychologist.



Scenario 5:

Mark gets a headache and takes some aspirin to school.

1957 - Mark shares his aspirin with the Principal out on the smoking dock.

2007 - The police are called and Mark is expelled from school for drug
violations. His car is then searched for drugs and weapons.



Scenario 6:

Pedro fails high school English.

1957 - Pedro goes to summer school, passes English and goes to college.

2007 - Pedro's cause is taken up by state. Newspaper articles appear
nationally explaining that teaching English as a requirement for graduation
is racist. ACLU files class action lawsuit against the state school system
and Pedro's English teacher. English is then banned from core curriculum.
Pedro is given his diploma anyway but ends up mowing lawns for a living
because he cannot speak English.



Scenario 7:

Johnny takes apart leftover firecrackers from the Fourth of July, puts them
in a model airplane paint bottle and blows up a red ant bed.

1957 - Ants die.

2007 - ATF, Home land Security and the FBI are all called. Johnny is charged
with domestic terrorism. The FBI investigates his parents -- and all
siblings are removed from their home and all computers are confiscated.
Johnny's dad is placed on a terror watch list and is never allowed to fly
again.



Scenario 8:

Johnny falls while running during recess and scrapes his knee. He is found
crying by his teacher, Mary. Mary hugs him to comfort him.

1957 - In a short time, Johnny feels better and goes on playing.

2007 - Mary is accused of being a sexual predator and loses her job. She
faces 3 years in State Prison. Johnny undergoes 5 years of therapy.

Thank you to the wonderful ladies who mad the blinkies!

"The Lord compensates the faithful for every loss. That which is taken away from those who love the Lord will be added unto them in His own way. While it may not come at the time we desire, the faithful will know that every tear today will eventually be returned a hundredfold with tears of rejoicing and gratitude..... These experiences, while often difficult to bear at the time, are percisely the kinds of experiences that stretch our understanding, build our character and increase our compassion for others."
