“The fountain at the WW II memorial is not the slip and slide at Busch Gardens. I apologize to the Greatest Generation, I’m afraid it’s my generation that’s raising self-involved, entitled children with low SAT scores – who mistakenly believe bucking authority is funny. Hey parents, get out of the water – set an example and #raiseYOURkids SHARE if you agree.”

A LOT of people agree. The post has been shared over 34,000 times in two days.
