Politeness is essential to rearing our young effectively.
A nine year old girl who was shot in the throat Saturday has been upgraded to stable condition. The child was transported to The University of South Alabama Medical Center earlier today by Life-Flight.
The shooting occurred on Riverbend Road Saturday afternoon and is still being investigated at this time as a tragic accident.
The story does not indicate whether the child was practicing politeness on her own or in the company of others.
