Some really freaky
stuff happened at school today. S.A.D.D.
, the organization of Students Against Destructive Decisions, put on a an odd skit
of sorts. Basically, a guy dressed up as the grim reaper
went around, class to class, asking for various member
s of S.A.D.D. to go with him. When asked how long they would be gone, Death
just turned to his hostages and asked "How long does it take for you to die?"
Later, the student would return, wearing all black, save a small red ribbon. The students would not talk for the rest of the day. I soon found out that this was to represent the number of average people in a group that will die of drunk driving related incidents.
At the end of the day, all of the students lined up in the main hallway, standing stoicly, and remaining silent. It was really a disturbing spectacle to behold as we exited the building for the day.
