The Mercy Underground

There are certain things from my past that I tend to write about over and over again. High School, the Fir Acres Writing camp, my semester in Ecuador, etc. It’s not really about living in the past. It’s more about certain events being at the core of my formation as a human being.

To that end, here’s another high school story, my first foray into underground publishing.

April of 1992 saw the one and only issue of The Mercy Underground, Mercy High School’s underground newspaper.

Here it is, in its entirety.
