MOUNTAIN VIEW, Ark. – “Can you get in it?” Katie Urbany says as she loads her daughter into a park swing on a crisp afternoon in Mountain View.
You need to go higher?” Urbany says.
This sort of back-and-forth is expected in the swing set.
However, beyond the playground yet another back-and-forth is brewed.
“I saw that their bus had that sign on it” Urbany says.
She’s speaking about a signal that has been seen on two Mountain View public school trips last week.
They also read: “We stand for our flag. We kneel for the cross”
“I just didn’t feel it was right,” Urbany says.
She has three kids in the area.
She thinks the bus sign shifted beliefs into driveway when they should’ve remained in neutral.
“The ‘We’ on that sign did not signify my kids,” Urbany says.
Urbany shared her picture on Facebook where remarks are still pour in.
Some agree with her. Other people concur with the sign.
“I feel that is all right,” one guy in city said Monday.
“I feel that is what people should do.”
Urbany is not against sharing beliefs on cars. A glance at her car demonstrates that. Political bumper stickers could be found across the rear of her vehicle.
However, for her, it comes down to whose ride it is and what is being shared.
” I just didn’t feel as though [the college bus sign] belonged in my kids’ bus,” Urbany says.
Mountain View superintendent Rowdy Ross declined an interview.
He says after getting telephone calls about indications on two buses, they had been removed.
He says that he does not know who put them out there.
As opinions and beliefs stay in motion, Urbany thinks some must stay in their lane.
She adds: “I would only love for them to become a little more mindful of that kind of thing”
