DEAR KIDS

No, you cannot write an editorial stating all the reasons police should not hide around school streets and give tickets to the teenagers (and anyone else who may venture on school streets) daring to speed on their way to school or away from school. No, police are not profiling you. They are ensuring you and everyone else on the road around schools slows down, pays attention, and stays safe.
I’m sorry I hurt your feelings by laughing at what I thought was a witty satire.
I hope you will forgive me.
You are awesome, but in this, you are wrong. Slow down, pay attention, stay safe.

Your loving adviser,
Mrs. Lee
