Spring break is either upon Ann Arbor families or will soon arrive to scoop up students sending them bursting out of schools doors with the ferocity of unbridled pent-up spirit. Of course most kids will be thinking about everything from short trips out of town to getting away from the books, classrooms, and endless studying.
Parents on the other hand might be thinking of a short and much-needed break from the unending cycle of shuttling their children from one school to another and from one extra curricular engagement to another. Whew! Time out on that!
Well while spring break can represent more Me Time away from the routine, it may also represent...
The fun part I can believe. Public service I’m not sold on.

We can’t do that, the parents would have to grow up!
“getting away from the books, classrooms, and endless studying”

“This might just be the opportunity for moms and dads to teach their children a valuable life lesson and practice a biblical traditional value as well, For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. Galatians 5:14.”
Now that is something you don’t see too often in newspaper articles.
