More tears... again.

In school, when I was young, it was about staying out of trouble. Now in school, it's about staying alive.

Another school shooting. Another, "it won't happen here.” I know President Trump thinks of himself as a great dealmaker.

SUGGESTION: Bring representatives of the NRA, the mental health field, law enforcement, the education profession (including: teachers, administrators, counselors and resource officers), selected parents whose children did not make it home that day and others, if needed. No one leaves the room without a plan to help keep our children safe.

Mr. President, the wall can wait. Let's see who our heroes in Congress will be.
