Interesting Choice

The other night I found out that a former student has made a life-changing decision. He was quite the independent when he was here - "Rebel" is probably a better term. Not disciplined, kicking against the regulations, causing problems in many ways. From what I understand, things did not change much when he left here.

Anyway, he has made the decision - to go into the army.

He's not the first former student of a "kick against the pricks" nature to do so. I was talking with my friend about this, and we agreed it's an interesting phenomenon, that young people who do not like rules, or who come from homes where there are not many rules, make the choice on their own to submit to the authority of the army or other armed forces.
