Today was a very scary day for my family. I am glad my son is safe and I feel sorry for the person who caused this mess. I don't think firing someone would be a good idea. As the article says I was at work in Woburn, MA and I made it from my office to Heath Brook School in about 13 minutes. I didn't care if a State Trooper was on the highway I was getting to that school asap. So many things go through your head at a time like this. In the end my son is safe and his classmates are safe.
