We are just bigger kids...


My son told me a story today about the reason he had a headache.  It started about how he was around another student/teen who smoked probably weed and cigarettes earlier that day and had the scent on him.  He then went on to digress on how his Spanish teacher is unable to control the class.  Other students today had to speak up to tell the unruly ones to be quiet and be respectful.  He went onto discuss how it will be better when he gets older and works.  I hated to break it to him, but adults are just big kids.  I have tried to prepare him.  I have seen and heard stories of unruly, disrespectful and possibly illegal activities performed by high upstanding adults.  It is hard to point the finger as we all have different opinions, but there are times when the actions of another may interfere with the health and welfare of others.  Sometimes, heroes speak up.  Sometimes they stay silent.  Knowing the difference make them the hero or not.
