The new norm, as it is being coined, is a sad statement of how we are living and dealing with one another. At last count, we have read about, or watched on TV, 20-plus school threats since the massacre at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. Twenty. Locally, Almont, Caro, Cass City, Kearsley, Bentley, Millington and Swartz Creek have had threats. If that doesn’t enrage and/or scare the crap out of you, you may very well be part of the problem.
