Take a Stand

By Terry Orr

It seems to me that our elected officials continue to that the path of least resistance in attempting to resolve problems.  Thinks that come to mind are:
·         Probation;
·         Prostitution;
·         Gambling;
·         Drugs;
·         Violence;
·         Immigration; and
·         Gun Control.

Fairfax County in Virginia has Police Officers assigned many of their county schools.


Explain to me, like I am a 6 or 8 year old – why grownups continue to fail to do the right things.

Words are cheap and for the most part meaningless.

Doing the Right thing every time is the answer.

Setting the example by your own actions speak volumes and are easy for your children to better understand.

Further Gun Control is not the answer – enforcing current laws is a step in the right direction.  As long as our society accepts Hollywood Movies, Television programs and video game of violence as common place in our daily life – How in the world do we ever expect to reduce violence in America?
