Let's keep the momentum going ...

Here you see NBA player Dwyane Wade and our current Secretary of Education Betsy Devos 

They were both visitors on the same day that the Stoneman Douglas High School students came back
for their first full day after the horrendous shootings on February 14th.  Of course it was an emotion filled day and the stark contrast between the two visits couldn't have been more different.

Evidently someone in Washington must have thought it was time for Betsy Devos, as the nations Secretary of Education to show some concern but she seemed devoid of empathy ... reading a politically correct prepared statement and not even sitting down with any of the 3,000 students.  To say the least they were underwhelmed.

Dwyane Wade, on the other hand, received a standing ovation of love and excitement when he showed up unexpectedly.  He waded right into the crowd of students and expressed what an inspiration they were to him.  It was uplifting for all involved and he was in no hurry to leave.

In a tweet, after his visit, he wrote:  "I just had a great conversation with some of the students at Stoneman Douglas High School about some important/impactful things that they have planned.  I'm looking forward to being more  involved in the change that they WILL create."

I pray he is right and I can't wait to watch this generation show us how it's done !

This administration can't seem to get anything right.

The kindest thing I can say about DeVoss is nothing.
Its a shame that people with lots of money (seldom earned by themselves) choose to use that power that comes with wealth to push agendas that hurt so many others.
If you saw her interview on 60 Minutes, it was obvious she is an idiot, so it makes sense she was appointed by another idiot who pretends he has money.

The kids at Parkland remind me of the kids of the 60s who fought to get out of a stupid war and fought for Civil Rights. And many of them were killed in the process, too. Sadly, that is what it sometimes takes. Pity killing all those little ones in Conn. wasn't enough. But, the NRA has purchased most of the members of Congress... and, for the fun of it, check out much $$ Russia gave to the NRA.
Just sayin'. Check it out.
