Lost at Liberty: An "I can't find my way out of a paper bag" Adventure



Setting: Liberty University Campus, Lynchburg, VA

Day: Thursday September 3, 2009

Time: 3:30-ish P.M.

Players: Samantha, Sadie, Kizmet and Kaiser

Stage Directions: Samantha looks hopelessly lost. Sadie knaws on a stuffed giraffee (Melman) without a care in the world while Kaiser and Kizmet are thrilled with the foot traffic around the Trooper.


Ah, yes. I remember this from my time at William and Mary. Random projectiles in traffic. More commonly known as "people," these objects interject themselves into traffic at random intervals as though they will have any chance at standing up against a 2000 pound object moving at speeds upwards of 5 or 10 miles per hour. Those are great leaps of faith...but that's where I am. Faith U. Jerry Fallwell's University. One of the most devout places on the planet. (The football team that was crushed by WVU this past weekend!) Liberty University "located in beautiful central Virginia, stays true to its mission of "Training Champions for Christ" by offering exceptional undergraduate and graduate programs in residential, online and blended learning formats." The irony wasn't lost on me. A Jew lost among a sea of devout Christians. I was by far the most obscene person on campus...except maybe for Kizmet and his show of licking his privates. That would definitely violate the code of conduct called the "Liberty Way."

If you want to read a REALLY good book, check out "The Unilikely Disciple: A Sinner's Semester at Liberty University" by Kevin Roose*
