I woke up with Wolf Blitzer talking about this on CNN. Made me sick. Not a good way to wake up. 5 minutes of that is all one needs to get the point so
I changed the channel.
People need to start being more pro-active with these sorts of things and finding a solution to this sort of problem. Children are the most important
resource we have. We need to keep them protected and educated at all times. I see a day coming when public schools are a thing of the past and school
districts start taking measures to teach their curriculum to students in the safety of their own homes. A cross between home schooling and public
education. If a district doesn't have the finances to provide computers to students, the vast majority of which own computers anyway, they can always
set up a "host house" where a certain number of students can go and share the resources. Get the teachers to be "host parents", or something
similar, so you know there's someone qualified to oversee everything. One of the main advantages to this is that everything would be on private
property. Someone's house. City councils may have to create a brand new zone for these types of set-ups, somewhere between business and private, to
where the legalities on that end are taken care of, but that would be a small price to pay IMO.
People might say "Well what happened today was an exception to the rule. No need to go to extremes" I don't care if it's an exception to the rule
or not. 28 children victims are 28 too many. Or my favorite argument: " Don't let emotions rule your decisions" Sorry, but if you don't feel
emotions about something like THIS then you're dead inside. People need to stop talking about what went wrong and start talking about what we can do
to keep this from happening again. Something realistic that can implemented without too many rules and regulations getting involved.
Those sorts of things tend to bog things down anyway.
