freedom       2000-08-28 
Ah, the end of summer beckons. With the approach of Autumn comes the beginning of the school year and the feeling that I get every September with the rumbling of the school buses: gut-wrenching fear. After all of these years, I still can't hear the distant ring of a bell or see a spiral-bound notebook without flashing back to my own incarceration in public educational institutions.
