SCHOOLS: Preserve these kids

Print Article

On May 24, I went to Coeur díAlene High School to act as a volunteer judge for senior project presentations. The particular presentations that I was assigned to judge covered a variety of subjects such as vaccinations; the dangers of farmed salmon; advocating arts in the schools, etc. Along with the studentsí presentations were their statements on what field of study they hoped to embark on after graduation. I was blown away by the maturity of these presentations!

As I walked down a very long hallway to the gym area where we congregated, I couldnít help but think of all the mass school shootings. The thought that these students, all dressed up and obviously excited for the occasion would ever have to endure an evil intruder was a thought that I would have preferred not to have had and I felt profound sorrow that weíre not doing more to prevent guns being in the hands of those bent on destroying the lives of others.

HOW CAN WE NOT DO EVERYTHING POSSIBLE TO ENSURE THE SAFETY OF OUR PRECIOUS CHILDREN? Why does my government not enact stricter gun laws when other countries did so immediately following these terrible acts? I fail to understand my governmentís inaction and what seems to me to be an egregious lack of humanity!
