Respect – A Noble Quality

Since the dust has settled on this incident that happened exactly one year ago, I know that there is more to the entire situation than anyone has taken the time to thoroughly explain. Perhaps they aren’t allowed to (privacy / district policy / what-have-you). I recognize and respect that this is in the past. Things change in life … ALWAYS. Many times we just have to suck it up and move on.

EHS put on some amazing performances under Neil’s direction. Some were a bit dark and “out there”. When you consider that the audiences of high school productions will naturally include younger siblings, is this always a good thing? Maybe not. I LOVED Frankenstein! Don’t get me wrong! Not so much for a younger audience, though. Tommy? Bizarre … not my favorite … and clearly above the understanding of younger audiences.

RespectWhat I don’t understand is the abandonment of many very talented students upon the appointment of a new theater director, Jennifer Condreay, who has a masters degree in Theatre. One of her former students is Andy Kelso (Broadway actor:!bio/c240r ) right here at Eaglecrest! Parents are supporting and even encouraging this behavior in their children. My support ended at exercising their 1st Amendment right to peaceably assemble. I do not support the apparent lack of respect to a new teacher.

I don't believe humans truly have a purpose. Our goal is to survive until we expire. Period. Joy is pleasurable and worrying is not. Balance in life is crucial; but if the scales must tip, may they tip on the side of joy. I’m just another human trying to survive. I blog because I can and because I enjoy it, not because it serves any purpose.
