Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,

I saw a member of Womens Chorus faint during the choir devotional. What happened and is she okay?

A: Dear concerned audience,
I was waiting for someone to comment on that. In fact, I said to my sister, "I wonder how many people will write in to the Board about that..."
No, she's just fine. Standing for long periods of time under hot, bright lights can cause some people to faint. If you've ever been in a choir, your choir director will tell you, first of all, not to move because you'll draw attention to yourself. Moreover, you shouldn't lock your knees, and try and stay comfortable, and if you feel like you're going to faint or something, quietly sit down until you feel ok. There were actually 4 people who fainted/looked like they were going to faint in the devotional today. Two fainted, one girl sat down, and another one walked out. That's what hot lights can sometimes do, unfortunately.
