*It has been all over the news lately about the kids who purchased their own airline tickets without a parent or proof of ID. What were they thinking? Better yet, where were their parents and how did this happen?
“I just wanted to fly,” said 15-year-old Bridget Brown. “I had the money.” Brown saved $700 from babysitting and asked a friend if he wanted to fly anywhere. The friend, 13-year-old Bobby Nolan III, said Nashville. The two of them, along with Brown’s 11-year-old brother, took a cab to the airport.
