So first of all I'm going to list the Columbine massacre as the event of the day. School shootings are a tragic event and this was the most ghastly until the Virginia Tech shooting. This came a year after I graduated high school, so I was removed a bit from the experience and fear of going to school and thinking about what those students in Colorado must have went through, but I remember watching the events unfold on television and thinking "not again!". My last day of high school was the day of the Thurston shooting. I had the same thought in my head, but having it happen in my home state brought it closer to home. But once again I didn't have to go to class and wonder if it could happen to me. I have since become friends with people who went the Thurston and survived the shooting there and have a great deal of respect for them.
Also, way to go BP. How's that last year been for you? Hope you got your life back.
Next I have a bit of a rant to go on. I must start by saying I don't have a bone to pick with people who smoke pot. That is within their rights to do what they want. It's a social drug and typically those under its influence aren't violent and don't cause much of a stir. But why 420? Here is the link to the origins. Yawn! Not exactly a cool reason to have a day to smoke weed. What's that? You smoke weed every day? Then why have a day/time to celebrate it? Why have some stupid day that's Hitler's birthday. Why not have it on Bob Marley's birthday, or Jerry Garcia's? I guess I just don't "get it". My answer to the question "Are you cool, man?" would be "No." Instead of "Like, how?"
