What a sad world...

I heard a radio show the other morning, 8-20-07, where parents can get their kids armor plated backpacks! I thought it was a joke at first, but no. They run about $175.00 a pop! This is insane. What kind of world are we living in?!

I say world because the Brits are doing it too! This thing allegedly stops knives, hatchets, machetes, piercing weapons, and bullets from a .22 cal. long rifle to a .45 Magnum handgun at a weight of only 20 oz.

There is a video associated with it. I don't completely believe the statistics they provide about survival rates. These students would have had to have the presence of mind and physical ability to maneuver these backpacks in front of their bodies, but here it is.

Just makes me happier than ever that my kids are at home where they belong! My husband's jaw hit the floor when I told him about the backpacks!
