Some inside evidence has come through about the boy, he is new to our community, he did come from a horrendous past. 5th grade, 13 that tells part of
it. All parents are on board in various capacity and I have done everything I can to follow through on this matter.
The squeaky wheel does get the grease, but it it sometimes takes time to hit all the parts needing greased.
Awareness, and the right questions have surfaced via this thread which is a testament to what kind of community we have here in crisis.
ATS is HUGE, but when something like this happens as suggested in previous posts, close family and friends are your first line of support, but with
that lacking in my life, this thread has served to bring forth questions and points of view my limited circle did not have the sense to think about at
I was freaked out and angry, and being hot headed in something like this would have initially sent out the wrong message and I would have been
marginalized rather than taken seriously by the school and the authorities.
This is an awakening and signs of the changes that are happening in small town USA. The choices we make now can either serve to enhance and enrich our
lives or drive us closer to a closed and narrow road of future oppression.
Words cannot express my appreciation for the thoughtful, intelligent, experienced and wise suggestions shared. This may have happened in my town, but
in many ways we are all in this together and creating the path we chose rather than one being thrown on us.
Thank you for reading and caring.
Now off to try and pay bills, get chicken feed and chick starter! (Have about 35 or so new babies)
