I’m 40 years old. I’ve lived in the great state of Oklahoma for all of about 3 of those. I’ve seen roughly 87,000,000 tornado warnings, but never seen one tornado in person. Not only that, I’ve never known anyone personally, who lost a home in a twister. Until this week.
I freely admit it. I’ve taken teachers for granted. Sure, as a kid, you wanted the ones that weren’t too hard on you when you screwed up, or maybe
the ones who never noticed when you did.
As a parent, you merely hope they will turn your children into the smartest kids in town. We look at state rankings of schools and hope ours is smarter than that dumb school down the street. Because, by God, my kid needs to have a good job someday so I’m not supporting them till they’re 35.
