I’m going to vote in a little while. I’m going to walk by the line of your supporters and campaign staff and I’m going to ask each person one question.
Not about taxes or eminent domain or abortion or Iraq or health care. Are they important issues to me? Of course. But there’s one issue that kept me up last night.
When I asked my five year old son how his day at kindergarten went yesterday, he cupped his hands over his mouth and yelled “This school is in Lockdown! This is a drill.”
He then proceeded to tell me what the procedures are to keep the students from getting shot. My baby boy. Then my eleven year old son piped in with their more sophisticated procedures—they’re not always together as a class and there’s a much higher chance the shooter is one of them.
WTF is wrong with this country? Why can’t people raise decent kids anymore? And why the hell are adults shooting children? WTF WTF WTF.
So my question to each campaign worker is…What is your candidate willing to do to ensure that my sons never hear “This school is in Lockdown…” without hearing “this is only a drill”?
