Teachers are supposed to shape lives, not save lives-what happened?
We have no baby formula, 18 year olds are buying assault weapons and strolling into schools and shooting children and teachers and who is doing anything about it???
We know our children deserve better!
We have fought for women to vote, for all kids to ride a school bus and drink from a water fountain regardless of color and for children with learning differences to have more time for their work. And now what has happened? It is too easy to buy guns, mental health is not able to help these kids and the legal system just lets them go in so many cases, even if they are caught.

What can we do to make children feel safe? Here's an idea from a Therapist who was at Sandy Hook when those shootings happened:
For Teachers/Therapists: I worked in a CT elementary school when Sandy Hook happened. What helped: We had our kids draw pictures of scenery that made them feel calm—we then hung them up around the school—to make the “other kids who were scared” have something calm to look at.
Just one of the beautiful children from the Texas shooting in Uvalde, gone but never forgotten.
No words, but it's time for actions to keep our children and teachers safe.
