The second half of the decade of the 1970’s ushered in the concept of the “ideal woman”. Included in this concept was the notion that women should be thin with little regard to bone structure and metabolism. The media heavily promoted this concept to the society resulting in many women and teenage girls becoming ill with anorexia, bulimia, and other illnesses including physical, mental, and intellectual deficiencies due to malnutrition. A significant number of women have also died throughout the following three and one half decades because of the societal promotion of this immorality. In addition, and by the 1980’s this concept was expanded by influential media and remedial specialists to include babies and young children which has resulted in illnesses and deaths to these members of society. Parents should apportion plenty of extra time to feed their children nutritiously to prevent the above calamities and to counter the attacks by evil against their family.
Senior high school year consisted of one social event after another that led me to have a sense of frustration due to the lack of accomplishment. It was time for me to move on. At the same time, I sensed that I was losing some of my intelligence by attending these constant picnics and parties. Therefore, I applied for and was accepted as a part time early admittance student at a local community college. I attended high school during the day and college classes three times a week in the evenings. I always procured good grades in high school English and social studies so my parents and I were in disbelief when I obtained a failing grade in English during mid-term. Four years of high school English were needed to graduate. For some unknown reason (as I was always well behaved in class), a personality clash between the teacher and I was determined to be the reason for this failure. When it became known that I procured a good grade in college English, I passed high school English. However, my high school GPA score was affected by this low passing grade.
After leaving a classroom one day and arriving at another scheduled class, I realized that I had inadvertently left my pocketbook hanging by its shoulder strap on the back of a chair in the previous classroom. I asked permission to retrieve my purse but was told to wait until the end of class. After that class ended, I hurried back to the classroom for my purse. It was gone. I was upset by this as important identification documents and other necessities such as my car keys were contained in this pocketbook. At the end of the school day, I noticed a girl who I was cordially acquainted with walking out of the school with my purse. I stopped her and asked her what she was doing with my purse. She said that it was her purse and that people do buy the same style purse. Scuffs on the purse made this pocketbook recognizable as mine, so I took it back and reported this theft to a school administrator. He verbally scolded her and let her leave the office with no additional punishment.
Physical education consisted of various programs of sports that students would engage in for a specified time period. Gymnastics was one physical education curriculum where students were introduced to the trampoline. Activity on the trampoline was considered to be potentially dangerous, as falling the wrong way could result in serious injury. A family member confirmed the possible hazards of the trampoline through a story about a girl that was known, who fell the wrong way on this equipment resulting in an injury that left her wheelchair bound for life. In physical education spotters were required to stand
