Open Letter Friday

Polymer Clay Snails is having a new MeMe… and I love the idea!

It is called Open Letter Friday.

Write a letter, to anyone. Sister, parent, crazy driver, coffee house person who takes 15 minutes to order one drink, in the morning, with 10 people in line AND is on the phone. (This is more like an obituary at that point.)

So… here is mine. It’s been on my mind all day, and is fitting.


This is a disturbing video, please do not let your little ones see this.

My letter is in response to this video.


Dear Parents of child in Kalamazoo, MI.,

Your son beat a middle aged bus driver 18 times in 24 seconds.

Your teenage son beat a bus driver because he was angry about a stop she made.

The son you raised beat a middle aged woman so severely it broke her hand, gave her

two black eyes, stitches and forced THREE other students to hold him back.

You said he was provoked by the bus driver? That he is not to blame.

How dare you blame this poor bus driver for your child’s actions. You should be ashamed of yourselves.

He is not to blame? Are you kidding me? Who is?

The twins living in his head? (He is schizophrenic and bi-polar)

The mental illness he has?

Your son has been taken out of your care “because parents cannot meet the juvenile's needs for structure and/or supervision given mental health issues and/or special needs of the juvenile” (taken from

This young man of yours has four prior accounts of violence against women; I wonder where he learned this behavior?

Take responsibility for your child, you know he is a danger; it is not something that is news to you.


Someone who works with bus drivers everyday

Someone whos best friends are bus drivers

Someone who hears about the lives of bus drivers everyday, and has realized if some parents just paid more attention, there would be less issues.
