|Not ALL Bad|
|I also remember the "Buddy Program" which had kids from Halls 7, 18, 12, and 11 going to the Sanatorium Wing (old folks) every evening to help feed and bathe those unable to help themselves. To be on this detail, you had to have the privilege of at least 1 hour of Ground Parole (will explain later), which basically meant incident free for a minimum of 60 days. This is where I first found what it was like to care for others, even at some sacrifice to myself (this was time I could have spent "hanging out" in the rec area, playing pool, or just looking at the pretty girls). The Buddy Program was strictly voluntary, and very closely supervised., and as far as I know, every one of us who participated loved every minute of it.
