“Children must be taught how to think, not what to think.”
“The mind once enlightened cannot again become dark.”
“Do not train a child to learn by force or harshness; but direct them to it by what amuses their minds, so that you may be better able to discover with accuracy the peculiar bent of the genius of each.”
The American insanity with guns continues. Yet, another school shooting has occurred in Denver with at least one dead and seven others wounded.
I expect that two things will happen: media coverage will decrease as we, as a society, become desensitized to these terrible events; and the other is that spineless politicians who are either afraid of the gun lobby or in their pockets will offer their thoughts and prayers. They will, however, take no action. They will simply hope that American citizens forget this latest tragedy, and they will treat the situation as normal.
This must end. I, for one, will never support any politician who does not support gun control laws. This horrible situation must change.
This is a call to political action: if you agree that serious gun control must be enacted, then do not vote for any politician, on any level, who does not support gun control.
Children, teachers, and parents should not have to face this insanity in our society.
