The Snowball Drop problem is a reflection of our city and society as a whole. Greed and disrespect are sometimes taught to our children in place of respect and charity. The same thing has happened at the Easter egg hunts and Halloween parties the Sedalia Parks Department has sponsored.
It should not be necessary, when there are numerous ďadultsĒ present, to do anything more than explain the rules and expect them to be followed. The problem arises when inconsiderate, greedy adults do not follow the rules or assume that the rules apply to everyone but them.†
Great job, Sedalia Parks Department. Please donít be discouraged by the bad behavior of some and please continue to sponsor events for the people of Pettis County. The turnout for this event was tremendous. Hopefully the people of Pettis County will learn from this event and train their children to obey the rules and also lead by example.
