We've probably all seen by now the awful video of the poor old lady being verbally beaten down by a bunch of middle school kids on a school bus. I have a few thoughts on this issue which will follow. However, one thing I won't say is "Why, back in MY day ..." because, let's face it, kids could be pretty awful back then too. Not me, of course. I had a good Christian raising and my parents would've beaten the tar out of me if I ever said one disrespectful word to any grownup, let alone the kind of crap these little heathens were saying.
