The Program - 07-20-2013, 08:59 PM
Teen suicide rate is now 1 in 4 worldwide. The American government has decided today to implement a curfew of 8pm, as well as their own version of The Program. The Program originated in England, where their teen suicide rate has dropped from 1 in 3 to an impressive 1 in 10. Effective immediately, any teen acting depressed will be admitted to The Program for a month before being released back into society. The Program may be our only way to rescue our children from this suicide outbreak.
Do you know the warning signs?:
Withdrawn from friends and family.
Acting distracted or distant.
Experimenting with drugs/alcohol or in possession of Qwik-Death.
Giving away their favourite possessions.
Crying more than usual.
Is your child sick? CALL 1-888-PROGRAM.
The year is 2020. Teenagers all around the world are being "infected" by suicidal thoughts. The newest solution to this problem is The Program, a month long mental evaluation where patients' memories are slowly wiped away until they are "clean". Parents see it as the only way to save their kids. Teenagers fear The Program, believing it to be a fate even worse than death. Only when a teenager turns 18 are they no longer eligible for The Program and are free to do whatever they please.
Inside every high school are 10 employees of The Program who supervise over the campus. If a teenager is found acting suspicious or depressed in anyway, they are required to take them to The Program immediately. Also, any person found selling Qwik-Death will be reported to the police and will face a 30-day jail sentence, and then admitted to The Program for memory cleansing.
Qwik-Death is the fastest selling illegal item by teenagers. Just a sip of the potent drink can kill a human. Not all suicides have been the result of Qwik-Death, but since it was first distributed nationally as a stronger Rat poison, the majority of suicides have been a result of Qwik-Death. Although it is no longer sold in stores, it can still be found on the streets. The police are working diligently to arrest anyone selling the poison, but many dealers have been able to avoid arrest.
Only employees of The Program know what exactly goes on inside the building. Each teenager gets one-on-one time with a psychologist. Before starting each session they are given a blue pill, and after they are given a yellow pill. When they are released, they have forgotten everything from their friends to their childhood to their real name. Many times, The Program is successful. It wipes away any traumatic events and they are placed back with their families (whom, of course, they have to "re-learn").
Is a life without memory worth living?
