Where are the children?

Remember counting down the days until the end of the school year?  Remember when the summer stretched forever and you were out of the house early in the morning and came dragging back in when the sun was about ready to set?  Remember games and bikes and forts and playgrounds and swimming and Kool-Aid stands and all of the other things of a kid’s summer.

Take a drive around your town this summer.  Some towns look like they’ve become “The Villages—Florida’s Retirement Hometown”.  Not a bike, not a baseball glove, not a kid is seen. Where are the children?
