574. Waialeʻe Industrial School

Today Waialeʻe Industrial School in Hawaii is only a tomb but past generations remember this place with fear. Not everyone was placed there fairly. There was a time where the United States ran the former Kingdom of Hawaii as a kind of colony controlled by private businessmen who didn’t accept democracy or even the kingdom itself. It closed in the 1950’s.

It could not have been a fun place to be as a teenager.

Gardening can be accepted if you don’t have other things to do. Hawaii is a place for fun. But if Hawaii is no longer for fun and you are forced doing gardening it is not a fun place for a teenager.

It can make you odd. If I was the young man in the first post, I would have grabbed a beer and relaxed. Then I would have it way better than this emotional torment he put himself through.
