The phone rings and I answer, "Thank you for calling Business Systems this is Mandy how can I help you?" The voice on the other end asks for Amanda and I reply, "This is she". The voice says she is calling to remind me of my 4:00 PM dental appointment. I sigh and tell her I will be there. I enter the building and walk over to the elevator; I push the up button and patiently wait. The elevator door promptly opens and I get in. I push the button with a two on it and the doors close, up I go. Once on the second floor I exit the elevator and immediately I can smell the mixture of wintergreen flavored tooth paste and bleach out in the hall even before I go into Dr. Adelson's office. As soon as I open the outer door, the blast of cool air from the air conditioner hits me in the face making me shiver all over. I walk in and add my name to the list on the sign in sheet. Harriet, the gray hared women behind the white frosted glass slide window, sees me and lets me know the doctor will be ready in a minute. While I wait for the dental assistant in her crisp white uniform to call out my name, I look at the fish in the large blue tank in the corner of the room. The sleek fish dart about playing hide and seek with the plastic mermaid at the bottom of the tank while tiny silver bubbles slip to the top of the tank"s surface and break silently while I wait my turn. Then I turn and look to see a photo album sitting on a coffee table. I pick it up only to see pictures of decaying teeth and gums. I quickly close the book and shudder at the thought as I roll my tongue over my teeth and thank God they are all there. The nurse calls my name and I enter the inner office and sit in the brown leather chair looking at all the shiny stainless steel equipment. As I sit down the bright overhead light momentarily blinds me; I feel like a deer about to meet his death"¦then I realize, it"s my turn.

Meet Carl Robinson, he is a...Meet Carl Robinson, he is a 13-year-old student at St. Mark's School in North London. He is an only child who lives with his mother and father in a small house near to the school. Carl is a clever student and is seen with a great deal of potential. He is also a popular boy and liked by teachers and many other students. Carl is a very handsome young man as well. He is a tall young man with dark tanned skin and short black hair. Carl also has a 100% attendance record as he enjoys school and likes seeing his friends every day. It is a Wednesday afternoon and Carl is at home doing his homework in the living room when his father Alan walks in, in rather a good mood, it appears he has news. Carl is very anxious to hear what his father has to say so he rushes towards him and says, " Why are you in such a good mood dad?" His dad replied by saying, " Is your mother in as I have some news which will affect the three of us" " Yes father, she is in the kitchen, I'll go and get her" replied Carl. Carl then raced to the kitchen and called his mother Carol into the living room where his father was. Carl was now starting to worry and feel nervous. Then he looked at his father, who at that point was grinning like a Cheshire cat and said, " Dad please hurry up and tell us as I am starting to feel tense." " OK" he replied with a look of glee, " I have just been speaking to my manager who as told me that there is a promotion available. Instead of being just a normal insurance consultant there is a managerial position available for me." Carl and his mother look at each other in excitement, " The only drawback is that the job is in Leicester." In an instant Carl ran straight upstairs to his room. " Shall I go after him?" said Alan. " No," replied Carol with a sigh, "give him a chance to get used to the idea." " What's the matter with you Carol, I thought it's what you always wanted, a fresh start. I mean just the other day you were moaning about this dump, and now"¦" " HOW DARE YOU," shouted Carol at the top of her voice, " how dare you say that I called this place a dump. I mean I work every day to keep this house clean and tidy"¦" " Hold on Carol, why are we arguing? I mean it is not exactly for definite although it would be a great opportunity for us as a family. I've already taken the liberty to look at schools in the area and there is one perfect for Carl, it's called Leicester Grammar and it does all the subjects Carl does at the moment and it's really high in the league tables. I have even been on the phone to them and told them about Carl, so if we did move they would accept him." " Is it a nice area though and could we afford a house there?" " It is a beautiful area with low cost of accommodation, it's a lot cheaper than where we are living now." " Well it sounds alright to me, so I'll have a word with Carl but it looks as though we're moving." " YES, thank you so much, you won't regret this." " I hope not," replied Carol moving towards the stairs. Meanwhile Carl is on his bed sobbing his eyes out when he hears his mother's footsteps, so he quickly wipes away his tears with his index finger. " Carl, I want to speak to you about the idea of us moving, and we will move no matter how much you protest," said Carl's mother. " But mum, how could you do this to me, I mean I love it here in London. And besides all my friends are here." " You'll make new friends and besides we'll be in a nicer area so what do you say are we moving." " Yes mum, but how soon is the move." " I don't know, lets go downstairs and discuss the details with your father over a nice pot of tea." Carl now knew that there is nothing he can do so he might as well just get on with it. So Carl went downstairs and had that cup of tea and found out that the move would be in two weeks time. Two weeks is just enough time for Carl to say goodbye to his friends but he still wasn't happy. The two weeks soon passed by and it was now time to leave. It was a long journey but when the Robinson's reached their destination they were too tired to look around. So they just unloaded everything into the house and they all went to sleep. It was a long morning putting everything just where they wanted it but the decoration could take weeks. Three days later it was Carl's first day at school, and he wasn't looking forward to it. He knew it wasn't going to be easy but he was going to try really hard to make the right impression. All Carl wanted to do was make a few friends and not to be known as the lonely new kid. A week passed and today is Wednesday. Carl still hasn't made any friends. So Carl walked home alone as he usually does but this time he decided to take a different route, he decided to walk through the park. On his way through the park he recognised three kids from his school playing football. He then heard one of them shout to him, " Excuse me, you're the new kid aren't you, Carl isn't it?" " Yes I am," replied Carl rather nervously. " Well I'm Tim, that boy over there with the brown hair is Michael and the boy next to him is John. We were wondering whether you would like to come and play with us." At this moment Carl was somewhat dazed, it was his first chance to make friends and even though he had dinner in an hour, he wasn't going to waste it. " OK then whose team am I on," " You can be on my team," replied Michael. So Carl played football and he loved it, he knew that this could be the beginning of a wonderful friendship. When they finished playing football Carl's new friends invited him to go to 'Burgertown', which is the local burger bar round the corner. When Carl got home he ran straight to his mother and told her all about his new friends. Carl's mother was delighted with the news and whispered to herself, " Thank God for that." It is now Thursday afternoon and Carl and his new friends are having a good time in the burger bar. They are now talking about CD's, " So Carl, what CD's have you bought recently?" asked John. " Well I haven't really had any money for CD's after the move." Then out of nowhere Michael said the strangest thing. " Carl, you don't need money to buy CD's when you've got these." At this point Michael was pointing at his pockets. Everyone on the table began to laugh but Michael couldn't understand what was so funny. " What is so funny?" asked Michael, "It's dead easy. I know why don't we go next door to 'CD's R Us' and we'll see how easy it is." Everyone on the table was convinced so they got up and walked out of the burger bar. Whilst outside they decided to split into two's so they wouldn't draw attention to themselves. Michael and John were paired up and so were Carl and Tim. Carl knew what he was doing was wrong but he wanted to keep his friends so he took a deep breath and followed the others into the CD shop. When they were in the shop one pair was on one side and the other pair was on the otherside. Michael and John didn't waste anytime they picked out a couple of CD's and were straight out of the door not looking backwards. Carl and Tim spotted this so they decided to hurry their theft so they could quickly make it outside. Carl and Tim quickly slipped a CD each under their jackets and walked towards the exit. As they were walking though, they weren't looking where they were going and on their way out Tim crashed into a security guard and Carl crashed into Tim. Suddenly the CD's dropped straight from their jackets to the floor. Michael and John spotted what had happened so they decided to run home whilst Carl and Tim stood there frightened of what would happen to them. Within an hour Carl and Tim were sitting down the local police station with their parents who happened to be furious. Carl and Tim happened to be lucky with the outcome though; they were let of with a caution. Although their names would be on police records for five years they knew they would never steal anything again. That was a first experience they'd rather forget. Carl and Tim were in a lot of trouble with their parents but they were still able to hang around together and they became the best of friends. And as for the two that ran away, Carl and Tim never spoke to them again.

"Give me your High School Diplomas,..."Give me your High School Diplomas, your Master Degrees, and your Bachelor Degrees! Give them to me and I shall throw them into the fiery depths of Hell! You say you have more rights than others because you have pieces of paper that say you are smart! You say you can do more than us because you have seen people born and seen others die! Well I have news for you - so have many of us. The only thing that makes you superior to seniors is your age, but the actions and words of many of you have taken even that away, for it seems that many of you are more emotionally immature than many of us! You make rules that no one can cut in line, and we agree, so long as you follow your rules, too! But no, you're too good for that! You have a room, but now you want ours, too. And what do we get in return? Nothing! Now you have two and we have none! We asked for a compromise and you did nothing! Then, of all things, you wonder why we go against you! You come here from other places, normal places, and expect to change things "“ to have it all your way. If you had taken the time to notice, you would have seen that ASM is no normal place, but that you have now entered a very real version of the Twighlight Zone! You try to do all this in a place so strange and new, try to create your own American microcosm, and yet you do not realize that throughout history this is why people have failed, and why hundreds have died. You cannot change the land, but the land can change you! You take all this away from us, and then you want respect. Ha! Respect is something you earn through your actions and your words, not a right that you get just for being old! You're supposed to be role models for us, we're supposed to learn from you and follow your good examples. But examples like this? This may get us somewhere in life, but it will lead us there by the wrong path! It will be a path of destruction, and sometime the hatred from those who were walked over to create this path will catch up to all, and all will be trampled by it! Do you even realize that you're supposed to be role models for us? Because if you do, then you most certainly don't realize that the students think horribly about some of you, not as teachers, but as people. You're supposed to teach us more than English, science, and math. You're supposed to help us learn life lessons. Instead, we learn that the only thing some of you know is how to make others dislike you, and how greedy you are for not wanting to compromise or even attempting compensate for what you have taken from those whom you have deprived of their long awaited privilege! In ASM's statement of its core values, it says that the school is "committed to promoting and developing a sense of and commitment to honesty, decency, and justice." How in the world is the school supposed to instill these values in all of the students, when it cannot even instill it in many of their faculty members?! "
