I would prefer that too. It's not that I like the idea, but, we might need to look at it as a realistic option. You know how they tell parents with babies and toddlers to go through their house, each room, and get low to the ground so they're seeing things from the baby's level, to better see all the possible dangers, that's the approach we need to start taking with our schools. If we're going to protect our children better, we need to look at our kids and schools like the bad guys do, as sitting targets in a death trap.
Show me the right path, O Lord; point out the road for me to follow. Lead me by Your truth and teach me, for You are a God who saves me. All day long I put my hope in You. (Psalm 25: 4-5)
