Chilling Thought

I had a truly chilling thought yesterday after listening to the commentary on NPR Fresh Air. There were two segments one dedicated to the school shooting and one on Bin Laden. For some reason it popped into my head if fundamental terrorists ever want to destroy the evil forces of the west they could blow up the 20,000 schools in our school system both k-12 and college. They would decimate an entire generation of future soldiers not to mention the future educated population of our country.....Thankfully they don't appear to be smart enough or coordinated enough to do this.

Could you imagine the day after such an attack...every child that was in school gone....I know freaky isn't it.

The very thought of that brought tears to my eyes and put a lump in my throat. It would be a terrible, terrible day.

On a somewhat unrelated note, the education system really needs to be overhauled. Kids are typically taught to be just like their parents, don't learn enough about the world at large, and memorize dates and shit with no regard to critical thinking. The parents want their kids to believe the exact same shit they do and not rock the boat.

Then, the country would be left with all the trashy, dumb kids who didn't go to school and get an education. Ugh.

So, I meandered over to your blog today..because you tend to live comments on Rocketstar's blog that make me laugh..Wow. I'm very impressed Like the poems, and the funnies...very diverse one aren't you? ;-)

Now on to the reason for this comment. The thought of this happening is more than I can handle. It would be the worst day in world history in my opinion. I also have a child though making that a very painful thought. You just made me extremely thankful terrorists aren't that smart or coordinated...Thanks Brian!
