First Grader Charged with Harassment for Kissing a Classmate

 
 

In 1996, a North Carolina boy, Jonathan Prevette, kissed a girl in his first grade class. School officials called it “unwelcome touching” and charged him with sexual harassment. He was suspended from school. Six years old! It created such controversy all over the country that the U.S. Department of Education had to rewrite their guidelines on sexual harassment, especially on how they relate to a first grader.

Times Square Kiss

 
 

The picture of the sailor and a young lady kissing in Times Square at the end of World War II is one of the most famous in history. It appeared in 'Life' magazine, but the couples' identity remained a mystery because the photographer never got their names. Just a few weeks ago, a book came out that identified the two as still being alive –- one in Rhode Island, the other in Maryland, and both 89 years old.
