A look into JMS Dress Code – Two Sides to the Story

On the date of January 5, 2015, an eighth assembly took place. As many of you may know, JMS’ dean of students made a controversial (in the realm of JMS) speech concerning inappropriate clothing for girls.

Since the dawn of our time, humans have been explorers. Our drive for adventure has allowed our species to adapt and grow in all parts of the world. We have explored almost all parts of our planet. On  July 20, 1969, Humans landed on the moon — this was our first step to the stars.

If NASA didn’t have budget cuts, There could already have been the first person to Mars (Mars is our best candidate for human colonization). Over the years we have sent many probes to mars. The most recent, Curiosity, Recently found WATER in Mars’ soil. Curiosity also recently found Methane, a biologically produced chemical, on mars. These are signs of past life on mars! If Mars could have had life, think of all the planets in our infinite universe that have life. We need to inspire our future generations to reach for the stars.

The stunning image above (courtesy of NASA, of course) is one of the stars. Millions and billions and trillions of galaxies exist in the universe, and in each holds [more] trillions of stars. Go NASA!
