I am very simple minded, have a mental disability BPD, own a business, work 70 hours a week, I am with people from all walks of life, 12-hour days, six days a week. I talk to many people every week and I must say what I hear is somewhat disappointing. I have three grandchildren in grammar school, I feel that I am failing them if I do not do something. At whitehouse.gov anyone owning a PC can send a message to the President.
The bottom line issue that we should all be screaming about is paid police on every school in America. Protect our children No. 1. After 9/11 our airports were locked down so fast, for protection. I propose that we do something that will make our kids feel safe when they go back to school, the sight of a nice policeman, and then at least they have a chance. Yes, these policeman should have their trained weapon. But I am here to say this is not a gun control issue. This is not a mental illness issue. Right now today it is a safety issue to send our children back to school. It’s easy to fix and shame on us if we don’t see that it gets fixed.
We all know the copycat crazies are going to be out in numbers. Now is the time to move. Before they have time to reload.
As a grandparent, I will never give money or gifts to my grandchildren that have anything to do with violence. One stand, one person at a time.
If not me then who? If not now then when?
