I think this so wrong, because a single mom with three kids just lost her job she had for 15 years. because a school system closed for the temperatures. It going to be 48 degrees.

I truly believe people have gotten not only lazier and weaker, but more afraid, as the years go by. The media is largely to blame because they constantly report a bunch of bad news, tragic news, and overall crap to pollute our minds. Believe it or not, there have been school shootings dating back to as far as the 1800's. Yet the fear of it didn't start until recently, when the media felt they just HAD to report every single thing. Because of that, we have copycats, who otherwise wouldn't have thought to do it, and fear running rampant. No, this isn't off topic. It's about fear and pollution of the mind to the point where kids aren't allowed to even runny noses from the cold without some bed wetter worried about them being uncomfortable in the winter weather waiting for the bus. We've become afraid of our own shadows. Our pioneer ancestors would laugh. Or be ashamed.
Yes, it's cold, and YES you should bundle up your kids and keep a close eye on them at the bus stops, and if need be, let them wait in the car at the bus stop, but when are we going to pull up our britches, wipe our OWN noses, and teach our kids to do the same? For god's sake, let's quit wimpifying our kids!
