"The best Decision is Not Always The Most Popular!"

Coach Westphal

“We live in a world that has walls, and those walls have to be guarded by men with guns. Who's gonna do it? You? I have a greater responsibility than you could possibly fathom. You weep for an Education, and you curse the system. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know. That the STARR test, while tragic, probably saves lives. And my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves lives. You don't want the truth because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that wall; you need me on that wall. We use words like honor, code, and loyalty at AC New. We use these words as the backbone of a life spent learning something. You use them as a punch line. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very education that I provide, and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather you just said thank you, and went on your way, Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a Book, and read. Either way, I don't care what you think you are entitled to.”

"Life is a process of problem solving!"
