NY state teens suffering
This morning on CNN I saw a story about the high school students that are suffering a mystery illness,similar to Tourette's Syndrome. One girl could not complete a sentence without being seized by muscle spasms. Parents are outraged-rightfully so. What I found disturbing was that some of the teens have STOPPED GOING TO SCHOOL. Wait a minute. In this situation, the school officials should be BENDING OVER BACKWARDS to accomodate these bright young men and ladies,doing whatever it takes to ensure they recieve an education. The danger may be in the school itself. 1 mother looked ready to physically pounce on someone at a forum on the issue.
Something needs to be done QUICKLY,done NOW,with the best interests of those affected being the ONLY priority!
And no,it's not mass hysteria-the blame is NOT on these kids!
