How Do They Sleep At Night

Sometimes I sit and relive the past four years.  I think of all of the tears, anger, frustration, fear, anxiety, and hurt that my family has gone through.  Then I think of all of the other families that are going through the same thing.  Their lives being destroyed while they sit back and helplessly watch it happen.

One thing always comes to mind.  How do the people that are paid with my tax dollars sleep at night?  How can they destroy the life and future of another human being and then take their paycheck?  How can they hug their children while they are destroying the lives of other children? 

I was raised in the 60s and the 70s.  My parents were strict and taught us to be honest, caring, and loving human beings.  We were taught that you never progress in life without hard work, integrity, honor, and respect.  You never hurt others or lie. 

I wonder what the parents our of teachers, principals, superintendents, legislators, and school board officials taught their children.  Would they be disgusted by the things that their children do to innocent children?  Would they be dismayed that their children care about nothing more than self promotion and the almighty dollar?  Would they be proud that their children are successful because they are robbing children of their future?  My parents would disown me.  They would not tolerate the behavior that I see every day.

I have been to many school meetings and sat across the table as these people have lied, cheated, and stolen my child's future.  I am powerless to stop them.  They have all of the power and my hard earned tax dollars have bought it for them.

How many lives are going to be destroyed before this is stopped?  How many people are willing to stand up for their children no matter what the consequences are?  I am.  I have been for four years.  Its a lonely journey and I invite you to join me.
