Parents, please take the time to find out how your child's school will protect them while they are in their care. All too often we hear in the news about a child sexual abuse scandal, a child who was left on a bus or a child who was lost as they simply walked out of the school due to a lack of supervision.
One thing is certain: intolerance and hatred inevitably lead to violence and death. Our primary response to the horrific massacre at the Pulse nightclub must be to rededicate ourselves to creating a culturally diverse society that is based on tolerance and respect for other religions, sexual orientations, races and life styles.
When our sentences end, people with criminal records are expected to return home and begin to support our families and selves. When I got out of jail, I started the hard work of rebuilding. I applied to over 60 jobs, but nobody would hire me. Broadly excluding workers with criminal records makes no sense.
