Class(less) of 2016
I just couldn't believe it wen I heard and read about it on social media and da news. My heart sank, anger enveloped and I was just..... extremely disappointed, well, mostly sick.
Just a few days before graduation ceremonies were to commence, a dozen soon to be graduating seniors from da Moanalua High School Class of 2016 decided that they wanted leave a mark (pun fully intended). Wat these lolo's had done was unfathomably incomprehensible and extremely idiotic to say da least. See for yourself, and no, these are not photo-shopped.
WASSUP WIT DAT!
As an alumnus of Moanalua High School, I couldn't believe it was MY school. At first thought I was thinking (hoping) it was a rival school or something li'dat but nevah one of our own. It's not dat it would make it easier to deal with but who would evah think dat someone would evah do anything back to their own high school - disgruntled or not - especially in Hawai'i wea we are all tied by it. Our high school connections are second nature hea so WTF was going through their minds?
Pranks are made to be temporary and totally in fun. It does get 'competitive' to bettah da next prank but still, dis was not only distasteful, it was down right cruel. Is dat how you really wanted to be remembered - da punks who basically shamed their entire class?
My jaw dropped as I saw image aftah image knowing every single spot of da vandalism left behind. Showing even more stupidity, they didn't know there were surveillance cameras all ovah da place? Were these da Valedictorian students of da 'Breakfast Club'? And to have a DOZEN of them willingly participate without a thought dat maybe they gone too far? There are actually many more vandalized areas and I just couldn't believe how much damage these 12 lolo's had done. And seriously, not dat it would be allowable by any means, but really, my five year old could have tagged 'Seniors' waaaaay bettah than dat. I'm thinking maybe these 12 aren't higher education bound and advocates for higher minimum wages. 🙄
My sincerest gratitude goes out to da staff - and any volunteer - at Moanalua doing their best to quickly have da grounds cleaned up and ready for a special night come Friday. Thank goodness da 12 students were caught and will not participate in graduation! I hope those who know who these people remind them of their foolish acts for years to come.
Life will go on, buildings will be repainted and da grounds will back in shape. Disgusted now but our pride will nevah be diminished - da spirit of Na Menehune will forevah be strong.
