What we need
We need a coordinated national response to the recent string of teen suicides. Remember when Prop 8 passed how there were coordinated public demonstrations in so many cities across the country? We need that again.
We need tens of thousands of people out for a national demonstration of mourning. Light candles at sunset. March slowly around our churches, our city halls, secretary of education offices, parks, whatever.
But that needs to happen. And then we need the same people to write and call the school boards and the superintendents and keep insisting on protecting our children until the school districts stop playing politics with our kids' lives and put measures in place and enforce them.
Can we make that happen?
Never linger too long with the ignorant,
throw stones at their talk.
Walk only with the lovers,
the mirror of the soul gets rusty when
dipped in muddy water.
