My eight year old grandson fears being shot at school thanks to the recent and continuing gun violence in our schools.
He experienced two lock downs at his elementary school in Denver, Colorado this spring.
His school was closed when the Columbine copycat appeared on the scene and again when a shooting occurred at another school.
He is eight years old.
What can a parent do?
His parents are upset and searching for answers.
How can a parent keep their child safe in America today?
With this on my mind, I read this in The Wall Street Journal today.
“It’s imperative that companies not be afraid to weigh in on the issues that are really impacting the world, whether that’s gun violence or climate change.”
— Levis Strauss CEO Chip Bergh on why the company takes stands on issues, including setting up a $1 million fund to support gun control. from Nat Ives, CMO Today, The Wall Street Journal
Thank you Mr. Bergh
America—where you can’t afford to get sick.
America—where you are likely to get shot living your life at school, your place of worship, a shopping center, a concert, your workplace…
America, we can and must do better.
