That's one girl. How many in Pakistan gave up? Plenty in Chicago have thrived as well. That does not mean everyone will under those circumstances. Cops are not escorting all the kids. The hire people at $10 an hour and that is not all kids in all schools. There is a program called "Safe Passage".(Link: http://www.cps.edu/Pages/safepassage.aspx )Not for nothing but that girl in Pakistan got half her head blown off just for going to school, and she is thriving.
If she can do it, how hard can it be for the kids in chicago who have cops escorting them to school every day? I aint saying its easy for them, but there are millions of kids who have it worse and manage to succeed.
Some people get shot and don't die. Doesn't mean they all live. Some people have the best education, awesome parents and commit henious crimes.
I'm not a fan of the logic b/c one did it, everyone should have no problem doing it.
