Trustee Ron Roth, right, talks to protesting students at Sherwood Park separate school board’s office
on April 19, 1990. Photo borrowed from the Edmonton Journal.
That's me with the short dark hair in the center, directly below the exit sign.
I randomly came across this online today. I swear I didn't know it existed and wouldn't have gone looking for it even if I did!
I never would have imagined the Journal had articles this old posted online. When this was taken the internet didn't even exist!
When I brought it up again this evening, I noticed the date:
April 19, 1990, exactly twenty-two years ago today...
The strangeness of that co-incidence is boggling my mind, so I just had to archive it here!

And check out this excerpt:
“We’re urging you to solve the problem,” Tara Woltjen told trustee Ron Roth during a morning meeting at Archbishop Jordan High School. “We need our class time. We have no choice; we’ve got departmental exams coming up.”Hahaha! In addition to being an outspoken rebel with a cause, I guess I've always been a keen student and an advocate for education!
Have you ever experienced a co-incidence like this? What do you think it means???
Update April 20, 2012:
I thought it was weird yesterday when I stumbled onto this that the Edmonton Journal would have articles this old archived. Then I realized they don't!
They chose this article out of aaaaaalllll the articles over aaaalllll the years to represent April 19th on their "This Day in Journal History" segment!
I'm in awe...
