So yesterday on a local radio program they were talking about flooding in Utah, since it looks like this Spring there will be, again, lots of flooding in Utah. And one of the men mentioned that in the flood of forty-something when he was in sixth-grade they pulled all of the sixth-graders out of school to help sandbag etc. to stop the flooding.
"That tells you how bad it was," he said. "That they got the sixth-graders out of school."
I thought something else. I think that tells you how much less we expect of our kids these days, and how much more they could really do.
