Reasonable response to Wilner’s letter

Meg JimenezAlma

Mr. Wilner, I am truly sorry that you did not get the opportunity to go to Europe and participate with the band. I know it would have been a great experience for you. I am even sorrier that you seem to think that someone else is responsible for your lost trip.No one forced you to go to a party and consume alcohol. You chose to do that. Obviously it was a mistake. A “moderate amount” of alcohol is an illegal amount of alcohol, when you are underage. The lesson here is not that the school board is unfair. It’s that there are consequences to our actions which aren’t always fun. You signed a contract which said you would not commit any infractions before or during the trip. Then you committed an infraction, and are upset because there was a penalty. Does your word mean so little that a signed agreement can be ignored if something more fun comes along? It seems that you feel you are exempt from the rules because of your talent. This seems to be an unfortunate trend. You say you “only hope what has transpired with the administration goes neither unnoticed nor forgotten.” I couldn’t agree more.
