This has been in the news often enough that the bus drivers should know by now to check their bus for children before they leave the bus. Is this just laziness or what??

I am theGrandmother of the child who was left on the bus on Tuesday. To all of you people out there with a heart, I thank you very much. I believe there are special circumstances that none of you even have a clue about. And even if there wasn't the bus driver did not do his job plan and simple. So for those of you saying he should go to bed earlier and all your other crap, you should know that 1 year ago this Saturday my Son ( Marty's Daddy ) passed away suddenly. My Grandson is well aware of this first Anniversary. On that Monday night he went to bed at 8:30 as he doe's every other School night. He was restless and wanted to talk about his Daddy with his Mom, so she laid in bed with him for about an hour answering his questions the best she could, until he drifted off to sleep. He is my only Grandchild and I have lost 2 son's in the last 3 and 1/2 years, My first Death was my middle son was only 28 years old, and then 1 year ago my oldest son who was only 34 years old. All I have left is my 18 year old son, my Grandson and his Mother. Had something happened to my Grandson that day while he was running down the sidewalk hysterical, that would have been more than I could take. So.... no he isn't your child or your Grandchild so why should you care, but think about it as if it was YOUR 5 year old SON or GRANDSON.
