When I was in high school, I walked a mile 4 times a day (I came home for lunch), and it was uphill both ways.
Most of what I just wrote is true.
At least 2 young people used the opportunity to attend daily Mass across from their High School.
Other kids joined protests because they didn’t want to be punished by those in power who want them to protest.
Swedish schoolgirl who refused to take part in one of campaigner Greta Thunberg’s ‘climate strikes’ is ‘bullied by her own teacher’ and labelled a ‘climate denier’
Global Warming Greta doesn’t have to go to school
