The Dare officer of my boy's school actually took the time to read the stories written by the two boys. The second officer, from another school, is the only one who had originally read them. After reading the stories, he came and apologized for saying they had cheated. He said he could tell that they had written the stories individually, and wanted to bring the boys in and officially apologize, reinstate them as graduates of the program, and invite them to the graduation. It's nice to see someone this considerate, adn we are feeling much better now about the whole situation, but still a little peeved at the other officer.
Take another deep breath. Take care. Stick.
