Yours truly, Josh Dodson, has been accused of toying with the idea of bringing guns to school and killing people. Recently I wrote a short text for my Art Appreciation class, and I wrote it in something that interests me... Violence, and Murder. I told Mrs. Trowbridge exactly what I would be writing about and she okay'd it, so I did just as I said I would. I wrote a short story that is incredibly violent, malicious, and to some evil. But thats just what it is... a story, fiction, false, fake, not real. Though it appears that the mere idea of a student writing something that isn't jesus christ or rabbits and ponies is a bad bad person and should be stopped at all costs... Even the cost of my education? Yes, the school is willing to ban me from school for all time if they see another story written as such. So in other words, by practicing for my education and college I would be destroying my only means of gettng there. By writing. This has happened to me before too, in the 8th grade... I wore a trenchcoat to school oneday and some students told the principals I was bringing guns and that i threatened to kill everyone. I was searched, my locker was searched, etc. You might see it as logical but as far as I'm concerned its ignorant. And it doesnt stop at me and my text... They are going to be putting a dress code against Trench Coats in the near future... I can see it now... 15 years from now everyone speaks one langauge, everyone lives under the sme nation, everyone is given a barcode... just like a can of soup. Thats what I see comng, maybe I'm crazy, idk, whatever. There is no such thing as a 100% completely secure place, especially a school... So quit trying to make it what it will never be and chill out.
