    So just watching a segment with this 18 year old experiencing “severe” depression after missing graduation and prom....I know this was on the Corona News Network but REALLY?!
    WTF is going on with this generation.
    Buckle up buttercup, life is about to happen.

    Yeah, it’s ridiculous. We went out of our way to do a graduation in parts and have the local ISP internet TV station put together a video. It will be shown at the time the graduation would have been, on line so anyone in the world can tune in and watch it, and kids and parents are still pissed at the world.

    Meanwhile, we know guys that graduated with free passes to SE Asia in their pockets, and THIS group feels like they got a raw deal? Losing respect fast for some of them.

    Sunday is Graduation here. No Graduation party's. So of it's not Raining which is a possibility we are having a BBQ at our house for just family. Graduation/off to College party in August

    My kid told his friends that were bitching about the guys going to Vietnam.

    Me I was off to Basic 7 days after Graduation.

    "Entitled" is the word you are all looking for. It's a national pandemic and we'll have to close the country down until we find a vaccine. Yeah, it's here too
     
  5. Some of those passes were one way.

    They did graduation here. Limited to 4 guests per grad. Used the football stadium to spread everybody out. Threw a graduation party of sorts too. They did a Cruise night where virtually the entire town showed up and drove through town. My buddy's niece graduated and he's a DJ so we set up in his front yard across from the park and threw a graduation block party. 4 or 5 other grads live around the park so they had their groups out front, and random neighborhood folks were dancing in the park. Cops showed up to shut it down around 11.

    Sounds great, Rach. Adolf Volf and Dr. It have declared the there will be no graduations this year. Blanket statement. Der Furher is running a one man show, despite growing resistance even from the left. I'm waiting for the travel papers declaration to go into effect. Welcome to Socialism - or Facism. Hard to tell the difference

    I don't know if the local HS had a Graduation, but a long "Class of Corona 2020" parade drove through our subdivision last Saturday. Over 50 cars all decorated.

    Our insanely ridiculous TriCounty health dep’t told the principal when he tried to follow the rules and clear things through them, that the car parade idea wasn’t workable. Too much contact. Seriously. IN-freaking-sane.

    So they DIDN’T ask when they set up a senior dinner for Wednesday night, at the County fairground convention center. Seems of you’re graduating, and your dad is the guy with the keys, and three of the grads have LEO parents, you can make things happen without any issues or interference from the insanity crew.
     
  10. Didn't think about it until reading your Dr. It comment but I think he/she/it looks more like Uncle Fester with a wig.
