Children watch as their lunch is trashed in Utah elemetary school

By now, most of you have heard the story about the Utah elementary school that trashed the lunches of 40 youngsters because the outstanding balance on their lunch cards was overdrawn. Apparently, these children, some as young as 5, had their food in hand while in the lunch line. When they handed their lunch cards to the person in charge of verifying their good standing it was discovered their accounts were overdrawn. Their food was then confiscated and thrown into the trash in front of them. What possesses grown-ups to do such things?

This incident struck a chord with many Americans, especially those with children. If a parent had done this at home, protective child services would be breathing down their necks. What gives a school the right to do such things? Who is to blame for such cruelty?

The saddest part is that this sort of power tripping goes on daily in public schools and it's not limited to the lunch programs. What makes this more heart wrenching is how the school used the power of food and the scare of hunger to make a point to parents who were behind in their payments. This is purely a thuggish tactic and one that should never be tolerated. It is the same as a parent sending a child to bed hungry to 'teach' them a lesson. A lesson in what? Who's in charge?

Children are not slaves to be ordered about and taught such lessons to. They are human beings with feelings, thoughts, needs and dreams, no different than adults. They just happen to be smaller and younger.

Yes, this incident struck a chord for sure and such behavior on the part of 'grown-ups' should NEVER be tolerated. If you want a lesson in what withholding food does to children you need look no further than what is being done to children world wide. There are some among the global elite who have every intention of withholding food from the masses now and in the future. Are we going to sit by and tolerate their actions? Think for a moment how those 40 children must have felt when they were told they couldn't eat that day and their lunches tossed into the trash in front of them. This cold civil war against humanity will not be tolerated any longer!
