Chicago Tribune VOICE OF THE PEOPLE letter 103 words
North Final Edition Saturday Dec 8, 2001. pg. 25
The article "A shadow of uncertainty; Wary students weigh their college options in the wake of Sept. 11" (Health & Family, Dec. 2) includes a quote of a New Trier High School senior: "I'd be really upset if this [the events of Sept. 11 and after] changed the outcome of the next four years of my life."
This opinion I'm sure is rare at New Trier (Defense Secretary Don Rumsfeld is a graduate, after all), but I'm much more sure that on this specific case those next four years will not include, in a fit of patriotic fervor, signing up for the Marines.
