    Five survivors of the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida blamed Gov. Rick Scott (R-Fla.), Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), and all politicians who accept money from the National Rifle Association (NRA). During an interview with CNN anchor Victor Blackwell, student Cameron Kasky called Rubio and Scott “enablers” who are responsible for those who died or were injured, and the families who have been hurt.

    Just when we think there is no deeper sewer into which America’s corrupt political system can descend, we finally see the first promising signs of resistance and redemption emerging from the debris. And for that, we can thank 19-year-old Florida high school senior Emma Gonzalez and her teenage friends, as well as U.S. special counsel Robert Mueller and his investigative team. Because of them, this has actually been an inspiring and hopeful seven days — perhaps even historic — in spite of the non-stop drama that keeps swirling around the Trump presidency.

    For all of those who are angry about the Parkland attack and those before it, and who insist that the experiences of the newly minted child-activists for rescinding the Second Amendment require us to do what they demand, ask yourselves: ... Do I want my rights decided by what children feel? Being a victim and being young do not make one nobler or smarter than he was before he was attacked. ... Victimhood does not create virtue or wisdom, but it does cause rage and emotion among those cultivated to default to feelings.

    While Americans try to cope with the losses in Florida, they're saying goodbye to someone else: America's pastor, Billy Graham. Never has our nation so desperately needed to hear the message of hope and healing that the 99-year-old spent his life sharing. So surely, it's no earthly coincidence that even in Reverend Graham's death, he's forcing us to look in the one place where the answers to this heartbreak lie: up.Torn apart by grief and rage, Americans are frantic to know why our nation is unraveling in one act of violence after another. "We're done with thoughts and prayers!" an...

    Remember the Whitney Houston song “The Greatest Love Of All”? The sappy 80s cover of the 70s George Benson hit starts:I believe the children are our are future Teach them well and let them lead the way Show them all the beauty they possess inside Give them a sense of pride to make it easier Let the children's laughter remind us how we used to beIt was cheesy and typical of pop songs at the time, as most of the music that came out of the 80s was. Now it’s the basis for how liberals view unalienable rights explicitly protected in the Constitution. The idea...

    Shortened title. Full title: Parkland High School Teen Activist Says NRA Members Are Child Murderers – And If You Oppose Him You Hate Children Following the recent Parkland shooting, a number of “movements” and activist groups popped up, and the standout similarity across all of them is that they’re fronted by teenagers. ehind the teenagers, working as the string-pullers, are the same people behind the Women’s March. They are vehemently anti-gun, anti-American, and anti-Trump – this is part of their sales pitch. On March 14th, 2018, the largest of these groups, #Enough National School Walkout, is planning a 17-minute walk...

    Students in South Florida took to the streets to demand an end to gun violence. Students walked out of classes at Olympic Heights High School in Boca Raton around 9:30 a.m. taking their call for action, and for safer schools, outside... The protest also included students in Plantation, Florida, who showed up to school on their day off. The students called on each other for support and action while calling out adults for failing them. "I think it's really important that we come together now," said American Heritage junior Veronica Ritkes," since adults are not doing it for us."

    In an impassioned speech during a gun control rally in Fort Lauderdale Saturday, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student Emma Gonzalez called for stricter gun laws in a delivery that’s now going viral. Gonzalez, along with other speakers at the protest, directed several of her comments to President Donald Trump. “If the president wants to come up to me and tell me to my face that it was a terrible tragedy, and how it should never have happened, and maintain telling us how nothing is going to be done about it, I’m going to happily ask him how much money...

    Tragically, no one's children will be safe at school as long as things stay that way The particulars about protecting innocents from mass murder at schools, concerts, marathons etc. are not part of FBI training. The horrific Valentine’s Day massacre that took the lives of 17 students and teachers at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, leaving 14 more injured, proves it.

    Here’s a bit of trivia about me: My great-great-grandmother on my dad’s side was a full-blooded Mexicana. For whatever reason, this trace of Mexican blood manifested itself quite strongly in me – more so than in my other family members – and I credit my swarthy skin, thick black mane, and Pancho Villa-like mustache to this lineage.To celebrate our family’s Mexican heritage, on Christmas Eve we would eat tamales, enchiladas, sopapillas, and pozole. Both my brother Larry and I eagerly devoured everything on the menu except for the pozole, which we despised. (For those of you who don’t know,...

    1. Do not let your child go to sleep in tears. Always, no matter what the child has done, no matter how upset we are - before we go to bed, resentment is forgotten, everyone forgives each other, and we all embrace. I think it's not necessary to talk about the importance of a calm, full-fledged sleep for both adults and children. If you feel the need to discuss whatever happened yesterday, allow your child to have a proper night’s sleep, and then calmly discuss it in the morning. As they say, the morning is...

Archpriest Vladimir Tukalo, a father of five children, discusses exactly how to speak about these things with your child. How do you suggest we approach our children? Sit across from them and start with the words: "Son (daughter), let's talk?” Or from time to time answer some questions as they arise? There is a formula for...

Every Friday afternoon, she asks her students to take out a piece of paper and write down the names of four children with whom they’d like to sit the following week.

exceptional classroom citizen that week. All ballots are privately submitted to her. And every single Friday afternoon, after the students go home, she takes out those slips of...

    It illustrates the appalling depth to which the network is willing to go to attack Trump – by merchandising a child’s death to advance its political agenda This morning, February 16, 2018, CNN sank to a new journalistic low by exploiting the grief of a mother mourning her slain Florida high school-age daughter. Just after she’d spent two hours making funeral arrangements for Alyssa Alhadeff, the network handed Lori Alhadeff a microphone, and faced her toward their camera where she yelled at President Trump to “do something” to stop this from happening.

    The “LEAVE OUR CHILDREN ALONE!” chant is one that should rise up today. It didn’t take the Women’s March Youth EMPOWER—an offshoot of Women’s March, which “upholds the unity principles of the Women’s March platform” to go rushing in on the exploitation of the mass murder at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. In fact it took them less than 24 hours to begin recruiting school children for a nationwide school walk-out, some of those children still grieving the deaths of their Marjory Stoneman Douglas classmates.

    Although recent state and federal measures should help prevent opioids from being prescribed or over-prescribed to minors, it’s unclear just how often doctors are prescribing the highly addictive drug to Texas children since regulations tracking and analyzing opioids in children are lax. Allison Benz, executive director of the Texas State Board of Pharmacy, said children may be prescribed opioids for routine procedures, such as treatment of a torn ACL or wisdom teeth removal. It’s what happens afterwards, when a child possibly becomes addicted, that’s an issue. She said a child might like the way it feels and then go searching...

    More than three years after he died in prison, whistle-blowing Russian lawyer Sergei Magnitsky was found guilty of tax evasion by a Moscow court Wednesday. The posthumous trial of Magnitsky was a macabre chapter in a case that ignited a high-emotion dispute between Russia and Washington that has included U.S. sanctions against Russians deemed to be human rights violators, a ban on the adoption of Russian children by U.S. citizens and calls for the closure of Russian non-governmental organizations receiving American funding. Magnitsky was a lawyer for U.S.-born British investor William Browder when he alleged in 2008 that organized criminals...

    Add this to the list of decisions affected by climate change: Should I have children? It is not an easy time for people to feel hopeful, with the effects of global warming no longer theoretical, projections becoming more dire and governmental action lagging. And while few, if any, studies have examined how large a role climate change plays in people’s childbearing decisions, it loomed large in interviews with more than a dozen people ages 18 to 43. A 32-year-old who always thought she would have children can no longer justify it to herself. A Mormon has bucked the expectations of...
