**Do you think the problems Pony and the rest of the greasers faced in 1967 are similar to those faces by kids today? What has changed? What is still the same? Are things better or worse for kids today? Why? What might we learn from the experiences of Pony and the rest??

**If you could create your own society or life, as you really wish it could be, where, how would you live? With whom? What would be different from how you live now? Why would you choose to live this way?
