All The More Reason


Sheer Madness

Some educators had the bright idea of lying to their students convincing them that some of their classmates had died in a car accident due to drunk driving. It was all a hoax in order to scare them about the dangers of drunk driving. Boy who cried wolf mean anything?

I thought this quote effectively demonstrated how a young mind can be confused by this sort of tactic:

“You feel betrayed by your teachers and administrators, these people you trust,” said 15-year-old Carolyn Magos. “But then I felt selfish for feeling that way, because, I mean, if it saves one life, it’s worth it.”

I’d say you ought to stick with your first instinct on this one: you were betrayed and it doesn’t matter if it saves a life or not – they’ve helped lower the quality of life of those at the school.

I am in no way confused. I completely agree with what the administration did. This didn’t lower the quality of life it only temporarily made people angry and upset. Despite what critics may say this program saves lives and helps increase the quality of life for someone else whose life was probably saved because of this it. I’m a reasonable person and at first I was angry but now I understand the sincere and good intentions of the school.
