Kids should do it and parents should encourage it.
The “Walking to School in Crozet” windmill has been something for which I have advocated for for years. But … I’m done. The Albemarle administrators with whom I have interacted have been supportive, to a degree. The ones who have opted to not engage have done just that. But there’s no groundswell from Crozet, no apparent desire.
But there has been silence from the parents, particularly in the most walkable areas of Crozet. Clearly, this is not a priority.
So … I’ll keep walking and riding my bike to Crozet Elementary and eventually Henley Middle School because I feel it’s the right thing to do.
Stay tuned for the next windmill; it’s going to be a doozy.
