The news of the Colorado shooting is very shocking and difficult for parents themselves to digest. I actually attended the midnight premiere with my two teenaged nephews and arose the next morning to the news reports as my own toddlers were stirring in their rooms, so I can certainly relate to the concerns parents throughout our nation are facing.
I recently had an interesting conversation with a friend. She mentioned to me that she had seen a sign in our Houston suburb advertising the fact that parents can opt out of school-required vaccines — a fact of which she was completely unaware. Obviously I encounter this issue often in my line of work; however, never have I encountered it so noticeably in my own backyard. If you’re curious as to what the sign read, check out the picture below.
