I can’t figure out if it’s a great thing that my son is reading in the park, or really sad. Notice that on a bright summer day there are pretty much no kids hanging out. Could it be that they are home preparing for the coming school year? Or is it more likely that they are watching TV and playing video games? I don’t really know, but what I do know is that my kid was reading in the park and no one was there to beat him up for it.
