We keep hearing something matters, and then the headlines scream stuff like this:
- A school bus driver was wounded in a shooting in Chicago's West Garfield Park neighborhood, officials said.
The 31-year-old bus driver was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital for treatment, officials said. The driver's family said he was released from the hospital and resting at home on Saturday.
Police said the shot came from outside the bus and entered through the driver side window. The driver suffered a graze wound to the head. Had the bullet been an inch or two to the right, the driver could have been killed.
A great big yellow school bus - you know what rides on school buses? Kids. Lots of kids. And this one gets lit up driving through the west side. You'd think a bus might give people (or folks) some pause about where their rounds are going, but nope. Life means even less when you're protecting the spot or dishing out some violations.
