In St. Louis, on the first Monday of every month at 11:00am, there is a loud siren that goes off during the day. The purpose of this repeated activity is to test the Weather Warning System to make sure it works in the case of a tornado. It is imperative that this equipment works as it is supposed to. Many lives depend on it. When this siren goes off at any other time, the citizens are advised to go inside and turn on a radio, use the Internet, or TV to receive information updates.
We all need a warning system in our lives to let us know when we are getting off track. As a student, it is imperative that you have a system in place to help you stay focused as you pursue your diploma. The good news is that you do have a warning system and it is FREE. The responsible adults in your life give you the important feedback you need to accomplish your goals. They can also let you know when you are off track. However, in order for the warning system to work, you have to react appropriately. Continuing to stand outside during a tornado siren isn’t a wise idea. Neither is refusing to make the adjustments your teachers are giving you. Listen to the warning.
