Guns and Teachers do not Mix

Diamond Mike Watson 
Arming teachers with guns must have been an off the cuff remark by the President. And although I believe he knows it was a ridiculous thing to come from his lips, it is not Trumps style to admit that this preposterous idea would actually add potential harm to our teachers and students. I know nearly 500 teachers by name. They are educators. They love their students. They want them to succeed and fully live their potential.
They are not prison guards.
I’m also sure most of them desire a place for students to learn that is comfortable without the fear that someone may be shot. I have a feeling that most of them would quit if they were required to conceal a gun.
If there is a fire, does gasoline make the fire go away? If we want to lower our debt, should we borrow more money? If too many guns are the problem, does adding more guns solve the root problem of shootings in our schools? I don’t think so.

Arika Herron, Indianapolis Star Published 5:14 p.m. ET Aug. 24, 2019.\ Everyone in “Diamond” Mike Watson’s life told him he should give up. The baby in the 60-year-old photograph was probably dead.

Police Report

Today I filed a missing persons report for my sister, Debra Kay. It appears there was never such a report filed since she vanished as a child. This will be submitted to the Indianapolis police, where my birthmother was living at the time of her disappearance. I hope the relationships I have forged with my […]

The Anniversary Ring

“You love birds can sit here with me if you want,” the elderly man said to the young couple desperately looking for a vacant breakfast table. “I’ll be leaving soon, and it looks like these are the last empty chairs in the house.” The Garden Terrace was a romantic spot that peered across the Pacific […]

To whom are we praying?

Less than a few hours of oxygen remain on the small submersible that imprisons five passengers in the freezing North Atlantic. Millions of people are praying. Millions of people also believe in the power of prayer.  Surely this concentration of thought will lean toward a positive result. Surely with our focused intention our prayers will […]

    Mike, guns and humans don’t mix, regardless of what the human does for a living. But well said, and I hope and pray that POTUS45 comes to some sort of sense – or that the people around him do. Not that I have a huge amount of trust in politicians right now, particularly when I look at the joy that is the UK parliament.
