F.Y.I. FROM YOUR PLANETARY SISTER - The kids who go to this school in the above picture, (yep, the above facility is a middle/high school for kids) these kids also get to wear Guantanamo orange colored shirts. It is really disturbing to see these children walking around in a prison camp like structure and see this color orange on children. Kinda like institutionalizing the consciousnesses of the young psychologically and spiritually isn't it? Who ever thought that a prison camp like compound and the wearing of 'prison orange' would be good for these children?
