Kids In Indonesia Risk Their Lives To Go To School (VIDEO + PHOTOS)

Kids in an Indonesian village risk their lives every day to get to school.

Kids as young as 9 years old risk their lives to cross a 160 meter broken bridge just to get to school.

Flooding had caused destruction in their village which also destroyed two bridges.

The children were filmed hoping the local government will take action to fix the bridge quickly.

    Kind of puts the old “When I was your age I walked five miles to school in the snow” routine to shame.

    Dear God, can’t some multi-billionaire use some of their pocket change to fix this bridge for these precious children? Shouldn’t this be a requirement to get into heaven?

    If one of these children dies because of a fall, was what’s on the other side of that bridge worth it?

    I believe this is known as “building character” and a “learning experience”.

    Nobody to blame here but the PARENTS. There is another bridge 15 minute away.

    Here, a crack in the sidewalk is enough for some kids to stay home from school.

    There will be some red bottoms when the parents learn of this.
