Long before the sun rises, Miami’s Booker T. High School slowly starts to come to life. In the darkness, security guards open gates and unlock fences as the first students lumber in before 6 am. For some the breakfast they’ll receive may be the first thing they’ve had to eat since their school lunch the day before.
I have enormous respect for the U.S. military. Our troops have every right to do what’s necessary to train for their dangerous missions overseas, even if that training involves waking up thousands of people in the middle of the night.
