“We each have to make a decision. We can either rise to this challenge, or watch more of our children needlessly die. Every adult in our community, from educators to parents to neighbors, has a role to play. Children need supervision to keep them safe. As educators, we can help parents in our city know how to safely lock and store guns, and how to talk to their kids about guns. We can help parents understand what questions to ask their kids about guns, what questions to ask about gun safety when their kids visit friends and other places. We all have to stand up. Our kids’ lives are on the line.”-Dr. Candice Carter-Oliver, CEO of Confluence Academies
