“I wish that there were fewer homeless people.” -Samuel Rux, 6th grade

“I would change our views of other humans to something more positive, because a more positive community will get more things done, because if everybody respects each other and isn’t at each other’s throats… if everyone isn’t arguing all the time, we can get things done.” -Haladar Wright, Freshman

“What would I change on the macroscale? I wouldn’t change anything, because I think there’s a lot more going on, if I’m thinking about macro, and the reason of life, why we’re here, God, this planet, and all that type of stuff. So on that scale, I believe that all things are working the way they’re supposed to, so I wouldn’t want to mess that up, it would be more of an interpersonal thing… I think it means that there are things that are messed up in the world, but I think that they’re working it out. So then I think, as far as an interpersonal thing, what I would try to do, is I’d try to be the best self I could be. If I could change anything, it would be something about myself that I think I can do better. Microscale, I would totally revamp the infostructure over the highways, because I drive on the roads way to much… so that be a detail. So, macro vs. micro. You know, there’d probably be a lot of many little things, it all depends on how you’re looking at it. Macro, micro. Micro, a lot of stupid things, of course, that I would change. Macroscale though, I just think there’s a bigger thing happening, and infiltrating, I think it’s all going to work out, and there’s a plan in place, so if I thought that I would want to change something, then I would be trying to mess up a plan that’s already in play. It would almost be like I’m the ultimate God… If everybody changed qualities about themselves, to better themselves, than things would change on the macroscale, but as far as wanting world peace, there’s another thing going. Yes, I would love world peace, but I also know there are other things going on, and everything’s happening for a reason.” -Joy Best, Math teacher

“I would want the population to go down instead of up, because I want to protect the enviorment with less people.” -Carl Bolon, Grandfather
