I live in California – the state where people live in sunshine more days than they do not. Where access to free and outdoor activities abounds. And, where this past week a serious threat to a local Pasadena high school was thwarted – thanks to the efforts of astute community members and law enforcement.
It isn’t yet September and we are talking about school violence as if it is an eventuality this new school year and no longer “breaking news”. How can this be?
So, I want to start a dialog and invite all respectful readers to join the conversation by answering this one complicated question with only ten words:
How can we make our schools safe for our students?
