Thought For The Day

Some of you know that I was a public school teacher before I became a lawyer.  I taught elementary school children, mostly the little ones.  The tragedy of Newtown, Connecticut has affected me as a parent, as a teacher, and as an American.  Here are my brief thoughts.

Someone, some thing, some spirit must take back our country.

There is more gun violence in American than in any other nation on earth.  At some point, personal liberties must give way to the health and well-being of the nation at large.  At some point, the connection between violence in the media and the acts of unstable perpetrators must be acknowledged.  At some point, treatment for the mentally ill must become more prevalent and accepted without stigma.

I hope that the member of our electorate will come to their collective senses, become the wise and brave representatives that we elected them to be, and take the right measures to protect our country.

This is my Christmas Wish.

Susan

  1. Thank you Susan. It’s so important that someone says it and you put it beautifully. There are few things sadder than 20 6 and 7-year-olds murdered in their classroom. Then again, there is one thing sadder: 20 6 and 7-year-olds murdered in their classroom and no one does a thing about it.

  2. What’s up to every body, it’s my first pay
    a quick visit of this webpage; this web site includes awesome and actually
    good material in favor of readers.

  3. excellent points altogether, you just gained a brand
    new reader. What would you recommend in regards to your post that you
    just made a few days in the past? Any sure?

  4. I think that what you published was very logical.
    But, think on this, what if you typed a catchier post title?
    I ain’t saying your content is not solid, but what if you added a title that makes people desire more?
    I mean Thought For The Day | Best Friends at the Bar™ is kinda plain. You could glance at Yahoo’s front
    page and watch how they create post headlines to get people to click.
    You might add a related video or a picture or two to get readers interested about
    everything’ve got to say. Just my opinion, it could bring your
    posts a little livelier.
