This Raised A Red Flag For Me – And It Should For You, Too

7 Jun

I stopped into one of the area stores today and heard a rumor – now I don’t usually listen to rumors but this one bothered me, if it’s true. The cashier told me that seniors at the local high school are putting bleach in squirt guns and shooting people on the last day of school.

Really? Bleach?

First of all, I don’t want clothes ruined. Second of all, I don’t want anyone blinded if that crap gets in their eyes.

This frightening rumor certainly raised alarms for me. I hope it’s not true, but if it is – if you have a senior, know a senior or know someone with a kid, PLEASE talk to them. If they insist on doing SOMETHING to make others humiliated in some way, hand them a jar of vinegar. It won’t ruin clothes and it won’t have lasting damaging effects on the victim. It will stink to high heaven, which should give these kids some satisfaction.

I don’t know if the rumor is true, but I know that kids will be kids – and kids don’t always think. Please, let’s be adults and help them think about this decision. Get out the white vinegar. It’s much safer than flippin’ bleach. Let’s keep sending our kids to SAFE environments – which means we need to step up as parents and fight to keep it that way.
