As several inches of rain falls in Postdam, New York today and the twenty-mile an hour wind whips the rain against the school’s windows, at least one student was contemplating the use of the high school as a refuge from the zombie horde, should it arrive. This article was in the miscellaneous section on the Postdam High journalism website, The PCS Press, and it is cleverly written:
“In today’s fast-paced and hazardous world, we find ourselves advised to prepare for disaster after disaster, catastrophe after apocalypse. Some threats we prepared ourselves for never came to pass in any meaningful fashion—Y2K, Swine Flu, the Large Hadron Collider singularity that we were sure was going to digest the Earth. Other disasters, ones that we didn’t prepare for, caught us unawares: the Ice Storm, Katrina, and the Twilight Saga, just to name a few.”
Gotta love that Twilight Saga disaster – I couldn’t agree more. Anyway, it’s a well thought out article written by Allana Connolly, with detailed plans for where in the high school one should position themselves for that inevitable day. It’s short and fun to read – you can put yourself in the head of this high school student for a few minutes and reminisce.
