Really missing the point

To those people who have commented/whined on this site about how inconvenient it is when your child's school goes nut-free. No, your rights are not being violated. The schools are trying to save lives. It is commendable! As a mom to a 4 yr old who's throat will close up if he accidently eats any kind of tree nut, I am thankful that we have caring people out there who are willing to put some safety measures in place. Oh, how terrible you have to make another kind of sandwich for your little one! I have to carry 2 epi-pens in my purse so I can hopefully get to my child in time if he eats a treenut. You have to just make a sunflower seed butter sandwich. Give me a break!
