School Story

My senior year 1971, we had a "sit-in" on the front lawn of the school grounds protesting the firing of 2 teachers. I was given the choice to get back to class within 5 minutes, or risk the chance of not graduating...as much as I wanted to stay the sit in...I chose to go back to class or face the consequences of trying to explain to my Dad why I could not graduate!!!!! All in all it was a great lesson in freedom of speech...but graduating was more important to me at the time!!!
