During the activities here on our Blog I’ve noticed there seems to be a time line of when some radical changes occurred at ACS.
During 1961 and prior us older Saigon Kids carefully crafted ACS to be as unlike a stateside school as possible – keeping it as “UN-school” as was humanly achievable – so we would have ample time to pursue all our extracurricular activities. But, then it seems starting in 1962 though 1965 you younger Saigon Kids began trashing all our previous efforts as you demanded a “State Side School” which eventually you got.
Hence, the line was drawn in the sand with the older “UN-schooled” alumni on one side of the line and the younger “Schooled” alumni on the other side of the line.
However, I’ve noticed a pattern of the older “UN-schooled” alumni actually being ‘more learned” in the ways of the world then the younger “Schooled” alumni.
For example, over the past couple of weeks the older “UN-schooled” alumni have searched out, located and re-connected with 11 former classmates from ACS – with everyone involved spending a total of less then about 10 hours to accomplish this so called “impossible feat” – according to you younger “Schooled” alumni, anyway. And, all we’ve heard from you younger “Schooled” alumni, for months now, is a bunch of whining about how hard it is to locate your former ACS classmates.
In light of the above it has become apparent the older “UN-Schooled” alumni are far superior to the younger “Schooled” alumni.
What’s that I hear you younger “Schooled” alumni saying?!
Well, well … PROVE US WRONG!
Let the CONTEST begin!
WE the older “UN-Schooled” alumni — CHALLENGE — YOU the younger “Schooled” alumni to seek out, locate and re-connect with more former ACS classmates in a shorter amount of time then WE the older “UN-Schooled” alumni do.
Let the games begin starting NOW … that is if you have the courage to take us on! 🙂
