A sore GOOD MORNING!!! to you all! Yup, a bit sore from some hard rolling jitsu last night. Yes, I know, I cheated on my afternoon crew and snuck in to the night class. It meant nothing to me!
What Would You Do Wednesday Ed-vise today. Cause I LOVE WEDNESDAYS!
Well, it happened again. 15 year old kid shot up his school. 3 dead; 8 wounded.
The difference this time is that the school had practiced active shooter drills. Teachers and students knew what to do regarding hiding in classrooms and barricading doors. Then gathering items that could be used as weapons against the shooter. I genuinely mean it when I say “Great Job Teachers and Students.” GREAT JOB! Your actions prevented a mess from becoming worse.
One situations stands out. Reports suggest that the shooter approached a classroom and checked the door handle. When it was locked, the shooter supposedly stated that they were the sheriff and that the students could come out. Basically giving the “ALL CLEAR.”
The teacher was wise enough to say no and then evacuated the class out the first floor window. Again, GREAT JOB!
So, What Would You Do if you found yourself in such a predicament?
Students, listen (or read). The first call you need to make is to 911. I know that parents are grateful that their kid called them first. However, YOUR PARENT CANNOT HELP YOU AT THIS TIME! Call 911. Same goes for the teachers.
Now, pay attention to this in order to avoid a fake “ALL CLEAR.” After you call 911, tell the operator that you are going to stay on the line. Put the phone on speaker and set it down. What this does is allows the 911 operator to know where the police are in the building. They can literally hear the police doing there thing and can coordinate with those locked in a room. Then, when the police come to your door, the operator can confirm their presence and you can have peace of mind.
Here is the other thing for the people impacted by this shooting: GET READY FOR THE BULLSHIT!
People today are ultra divided and looking to make a statement. You are going to be confronted by the likes of Trumptards, Boebidiots, Limbaughdiots, along with Alex “Sandy Hook Never Happened” Jones. They are going to come at you with threats and hatred in order to protect their idea of a gun toting society. So long as the NRA believes that unarmed liberals will take their guns (versus a well equipped military), this will be the norm. Come together as a community and support one another. Cause it’s not going to get better.
I’m just saying
That’s it for today. Take care of yourselves. Check in on each other and remember a train that eats too much is called a CHEW CHEW TRAIN! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAA…ohhh…that hurts!
