so today, when i was working in class my history teacher asked all of use where we wanted to go to college and what we wanted to do when we ‘grew up’ since my surname begins with CA i was very close to the start. I told her that i hoped to go to The United States Military Academy at Westpoint (or ROTC if i don’t get it) and become an Army officer. Right after that, one of my fellow class mates asked me if i liked killing people.
No i don’t.
Not in the slightest.
I do not like killing people.
But i love my country, i love what it Stands for, and i want to protect it.
I told him such, but he just kept pressing, phrasing it in different ways.
such as “Why do you want to as a girl! join the Army?”
or “The Army is Stupid, why don’t you join something Else, all they do is kill people.”
I felt angry, really really angry. And if you ask anyone i rarely get angry. I was clenching my fists and biting my lip. holding it in. It would just affirm his belief about the Army if i was to scream at him.After a while i stopped answering him and just kinda floated off i my mind, to other things. My History teacher sent him to the office (on the last full day of school mind you XD) for harassment. After that i was a little tense all day, but i was ok, after i ate lunch.
