Is this really a Safe Place?

This is the Safe Place sign that you see at many fire stations, libraries, etc. for at-risk kids, in particular homeless or runaway kids, who feel in crisis or danger.

(No link because the Safe Place site seems to be having issues with malware, which I’m sure is not theirs.)

Anyway, I really wish someone took a second look at this sign before they finalized it.

I look at this big yellow sign every day at work. Somehow, it just doesn’t feel very appropriate.

  1. That is a really awful sign. I don’t know how it got approved. Frankly it looks like someone snuck up behind a kid and grabbed him or her, which does not make me feel very safe.
