Children Know Best

As of last year, a 16-year-old Girl Scout has tried to warn responsible adults of the dangers of overloaded trucks driving downhill on Angeles Crest Highway. Nobody listened, resulting in another crash on Wednesday, killing 2 and injuring 12.

This is the perfect opportunity to preach about children and teenagers not having a voice and not being paid any attention when really, they are sometimes much more observant than adults and can perceive things that they can’t. But all I really want to know is why she’s still in the Girl Scouts at 16, and whether you can really even be a Girl Scout at 16.

I don’t get it. I never went to any kind of Girl Scouts so I wouldn’t know a thing about it.
