In the days after September 11th, two thousand, one hundred children were left stranded in daycare.
Because their parents didn’t fill out one of the fields on their daycare emergency contact cards.
“Who should we contact if you are not able to pick up your child?”
How could something so basic, strand two thousand children on one of the scariest days in American history?
The inability or refusal to take two minutes to think through what might happen, if they and their spouse were unable to reach their child. The ridiculous thing is, it doesn’t even have to take a real emergency for this to happen. You could be stuck on the freeway, or trapped in an airplane you were certain would arrive on time.
