Society Has changed of so much

Extracts from this document...


Society has Changed Oh so Much! Written by Jean-S�bastien Lalonde Presented to Ms. Douglas ENG4U October 8th 2009 Colonel By Secondary School It really is evident. Just look at those faces! Look how serious most are; check out their posture and position of hands. Nowadays, you'd believe it to be some divine school, at the exception of a female abecedary! This picture, handed to me by my father, is a class picture of my father's sixth grade class. Observing this picture, a couple aspects stand out. First of all, they are all well dressed Caucasian male children in an obviously religious school. Most have serious faces, and they all have their hands together as if they were praying.

In the picture, the students are little minions of a catholic army, while in today's classes and schools students are free to believe what they want. We celebrate not only catholic traditions, but many others. It goes to show how much we have changed, how much we've accepted each other for who we are instead of what we believe. The purpose of school today is not only to educate, but to socialize and have fun. I've most certainly experienced this, as my father has experienced the opposite.
