    Praying this was a mistake and didn't really happen. And if it did? QUIT LETTING YOUR CHILDREN WALK ALONE. I don't care if you "have to work"…what's more important? Your job or your kid?

      At 1:39 in the afternoon they were probably in school out at recess. It doesn't say anything about the kids walking home. It also said all the kids were accounted for, meaning the school counted all the children. They couldn't do that if the kids were going home. Think before you rant.
