returning servicemen and women are ideally suited to become safety & security mentors for the next generation and continue their public service protecting schools. There is a massive problem with military vets vis-a-vis post-combat suicide, homelessness and unemployment.

Nice response Silly.
While we are at it though ....
You all have a lot of other societal problems .... so ...
Ex military from the combat arms to safeguard the school ... but wait ... we can do more with these people.
Assuming they are paid for an 8 hour day, they guard the school ... while also helping students with 1 on 1 reading or the simpler maths ... and not necessarily in the class room ... find a nice tree to sit under.
After school they could also have small groups together ... those without fathers at home ... just to help give some kids guidance.
They can take their breaks while class is on so that they are all available at breaks.
During breaks like lunch time, they should be wondering around and TALK to those that seem like loners.
There is so much benefit for a young lonely kid if someone just sits down and chats with them.
Lastly, a guard can also be a teacher's aid and boy o boy, could your school system use some more help with teaching.
Silly, you have impressed me today. Made my day!
not everyone is the same I suppose. This one seemed different to me. It's not, and they happen all the time, but maybe that's the point. Realizing I was becoming numb to this #, was a wake up call to me. We need to make some changes and they need to matter. And I don't for one second think this is any one thing to blame, it's a very spread out issue.

Great! All it took was 17 people to die during the same incident as opposed to one dying per day over a span of time. This is reactive, political and narrative altering all at once.

Your link isn't surprising either. How can we hope to get rid of propaganda if we keep helping to fund it?
And yes, CNN most definitely is a propaganda outlet in my opinion.

Exactly. Trump stretched his hand out. He deserves praise for that effort because ya know what no other president ever did that.
I hope this will make a difference. It's such a complex multi leveled problem. These people are so brave bearing their souls. It's very heart warming that a dialog has been opened. I'm offering praise for president trump in this moment. Don't lose the moment or the chance.
