Garbed in loose-fitting, camouflage print jackets, t-shirts and jeans, their long hair bound in tight braids, two eleventh grade girls bent down, and each dipped a finger in the sticky mud, and casually smeared muddy lines under their eyes and across their cheeks. Then, with a little nervous, anticipatory chatter, they rejoin their classmates in a three-foot wide, 25-foot long, waist-deep rocky trench to discuss strategy and appoint the ‘general’ who would lead them into ‘battle.’
‘Intentional debris’ is haphazardly strewn around the surrounding ‘scarred’ battlefield: a couple hundred red bricks caked with crumbling mortar, large chunks of concrete, an array of broken tree branches, pieces of bark and mud. Lots of mucky, wet mud. This man-made mud, courtesy of volunteer firefighter Kevin Campbell’s frequent drenchings from a nearby fire tanker truck containing 1,000 gallons of water, was intended to keep participating students wet, uncomfortable and even a bit cold – all for the sake of learning.
