maybe we should encourage students to walk up to the kid who sits alone at lunch and invite him to sit with your group; walk up to the kid who sits quietly in the corner of the room and sit next to her, smile and just say Hi; walk up to the kid that causes disturbances in class and ask how he is doing; walk up to your teacher and thank them; walk up to someone who has different views than you and get to know them, you may be surprised at how much you have in common. Build on that foundation rather than casting stones. Maybe the students should be challenged to walk up to lets say 10 students and 3 adults and say something nice in honor of those who died in FL on the 14th of March. But then this will never happen

Seems that if schoolkids actually spoke with one another on occasion, instead of Fakebooking, Instawhatevering, or texting; more of the little S_ocialists Club Members would be too busy having an enjoyable time to be duped into line.

Great ideas, Asop. Like you said though, probably never happen.

Sadly, not in our politically correct BLM-ANTIFA oriented society.

"No other proof, however, is needed than the undeniable fact that at any period of the war from its beginning to near its close the South could have saved slavery by simply laying down its arms and returning to the Union."
--- Major General John B. Gordon, from his book, Causes of the War of Northern Aggression .

See a few folks post this on Facebook, hoping some kids put it in action. School social dynamics can be cruel and heartless at times but does not have to be that way.

Great idea that would probably work to counter these shootings. It will never happen because the left is not interested in doing good, they just want to feel good.

Enemies of armed self defense focus on the gun. They ignore the person protected with that gun.
