However, I still go and sit and "monitor" the military recruiters when they come soliciting.
That is my part time job. I like it. I have to go less and less as time goes on. This is my 4th year of being a "monitor" and each year fewer and fewer military recruiters opt to travel to this small rural school district. Go figure.
I still have strong feelings that children should not be solicited for any future endeavors that they cannot get out of, if they change their mind. I mean, you and I likely have the option of looking for another job, or car or spouse. The military does not give children that option.
I plan on being the "monitor" for years to come. It does not take too much of my time, and as a friend told me, "You may be saving many lives here and around the world." I had to think about that and I admit she may be right.
I would totally suggest that anyone who wishes to save lives, go be a "monitor" at your local public school. Thank you.
