Right in our own backyard

So I’d been hearing rumbles about a little boy bringing a camping utensil/pocket knife to school, and the ensuing furor over his punishment.

It was at Evelyn’s school. It’s been all over the national news, and I had no idea it was at Downes Elementary. You know, where I take Evelyn everyday.

You can see the story from ABC News here.

I don’t know how I missed the memo, although Evelyn is *known* for forgetting things, or neglecting to empty her backpack.

In the meantime, I’m going to have the “safe things vs. not safe things” to take to school conversation with Evelyn. It’s a sad day when violence is so prevalent in our society that a 6-year old is required to attend reform school for bringing a camping utensil to school…
