This is how bizarre our country has become:
Writing on the increasing fragility of the American college student, Dr. Peter Gray, a research professor at Boston College, detailed in Psychology Today about different cases where young adults showed an astounding inability to cope with minor hurdles in their lives. His article is titled "Declining Student Resilience: A Serious Problem for Colleges" and was published last week.
One incident that Dr. Gray describes is when two students saw a mouse in their off-campus apartment.
According to Dr. Gray, the students saw the mouse, panicked, and called the police. The police responded to the call, then set up a mouse trap for the startled students.
The students then sought counselling for what they had been through.
What trauma! The mouse should have been allowed to live; the students needed to be trapped and euthanized. The idiocy should not be permitted to spread.
