Remembering Sandy Hook Elementary School
This Sunday, December 14, 2014 will mark two years since the unthinkable happened at Sandy Hook Elementary School. There have been at least 95 school shootings since Sandy Hook. We owe it to our children and ourselves to build a country that doesn’t have to live in fear of a lockdown.
A number of agencies like the National Rifle Association have proposed things like arming all educators. They believe that the solution to guns in school is to have more guns in school. A number of state legislatures have been discussing educators. While some educators have been taking lessons on firing a weapon, firing a weapon at a live human being is different than firing at a paper target. Besides, some school shooters were wearing bulletproof vests. I wouldn’t want my child in a school where educators were armed.
Let us all remember the children and our colleagues who died two years ago at Sandy Hook.
