RE: what ever happened to...

Organized athletic competition has been happening in every season in every country since the dawn of time. Popular demand, HD and $$$ has nothing to do with it. Being exposed to pollution, and heat exhaustion are totally unrelated. DOT workers have a job to do. So do life guards. Excuse me, Mr. Lifeguard, it's too hot for you to work today. Can you please step down? C'mon. I'm thankful they are there to do it. Kids enjoy being outside and being a part of an organized activity. If they didn't, they would not be there. Is it too hot outside to go to the pool or the beach? Or is it okay to go because you can "cool off" in the water. Of course it's okay. Along with anything else, you take precaution. No one is forgetting about our kids right here at home. They practice in the evening and the early morn, unlike the lifeguard and the DOT worker that has to be in the heat of the day. They take water breaks, and are not allowed to compete with signs of fatigue and are all cleared to play medically. Sometimes you just have to let them go.
