The loss of Robin Williams jarred me pretty hard. He was one of my favorite comedians when I was growing up, as well as in some of my favorite movies. I knew he had issues with depression, but I di…

A Michigan mother decided to give students at her son’s high school a Mother’s Day gift of sorts.
Amanda Keown’s son says school officials took his lunch away because he owed less than $5 on his school account.
Dominic Gant said, “It was really embarrassing, especially in front of the whole lunch room.”
She says the school told her that students who owe don’t get lunch, no matter how much they are behind.
That’s when she decided to pay the accounts of every student in the school.
Keown said, “I realize I didn’t have to do that but I don’t want another kid going through what my son went through.”
The total to pay off all of the students’ outstanding balances ended up being just under $100.
A short time later, the principal of Dowagiac Union High School said Dominic should not have been sent home hungry.
"The total ended up being just under $100"
That’s important. For a lot of people it ain’t much holdin em back but it’s holdin em back all the same.
Fuck every motherfucker who thinks it’s ok to deny children food.
Fuck their businesses masquerading as schools.
Fuck the system that actually continues to deny people necessities based on some dumb shit.
Denying a child food.
That’s some kind of soulless.
All throughout my 11 years of mandatory education, if a kid owed money, they’d at least be given a PB&J and a piece of fruit.
This? This is fucking cruel.
Because denying them the one “meal” they do manage to get for all 7 hours still isn’t as important as funding other things. Like sports.
