When I was young things were a lot more different.
If you lived less than two miles from your school, you couldn’t ride the bus, you had to walk.
There were crossing guards at every intersection within a few blocks of our school. Most of were retired policemen who worked part time, protecting the children who had to walk to school.
I was one of those unfortunate children who happened to live 1.9 miles from Lime Street Elementary School.
Even though I had to walk to school, I always felt safe crossing the highway because the crossing guard was there.
