when i was younger, I went to bible summer school (forced thing) in the Finger Lakes region. Everyday there was a different special day. For
example, christmas, easter, etc.. The friday was April Fools day, but they did not tell us the special day until morning. Thursday night, around 1am
in the morning, the counslers came to wake everyone up. We were all pretty slow getting to the main building. All the kids were rounded up and told
to be qiuet. The leader comes onto the stage and says they have found a boat not belonging to the camp on the island (we were on a island) and that
the local police were looking for escape convict. For those that know, this was at the time of the OKA crisis in Canada, just on the other side of
the border. After a couple minutes, the lights go dark, and out of the four corners of the building, masked men came in shooting rounds up in the
roof. Kids went nuts. kids fainted, kids screamed and cried, all access points were blocked by masked gunmen.
I think they quickly realized their error in scaring 5-14 years olds. Lights came back on, APRIL FOOLS. It was a mini riot after that. Imagine upset
kids, roaming the island, destroying little things, totally ignoring all ADULTS on the island. I knew it was a hoax, but most of the kids around did
not. I took advantage of being one of the older ones, and rounded up the younger kids and hung out with them during the night, eventually putting
them back to bed.
Leader of the island lost his job, and i have to say this experience was what made me turn away from oganized religion. I kept my spirituality though
I thought my story was similar so I thought i would share it.
Adults are stupid sometimes. no, most of the time. Im a Toys R us kid, and will remain until my time is up on this blue globe.
