Our Children are our countries most valuable asset. They contain both our future, and our hopes and aspirations. Both at a deeply personal level, and also at a national level. They are our most important resource.
I propose that you sign a letter today commanding the armed forces, of which you are commander and chief, instructing your armed forces to staff our schools with 2 to 3 armed military personel. I have done some research, and I believe that there are about 100,000 public schools in the United States. You of course, will probably have a better grasp of this number. That being said, it would take 200,000 to 300,000 troops to secure our most important national asset.
I believe that it also could be a way to help stimulate the economy, and to also promote the armed forces as an honorable profession. One that has many benefits.
Mr President - with the latest shooting, I urge you to at least seriously consider this, and to take action now, if only for 3-6 months to make a crystal clear statement about what YOU as the leader of the free world value the most.
Thank you for your time and consideration,
Kevin Hill - I have been thinking for days about ways to prevent or get ahead of the events that lead to the horrible events in NewTown.
I recently saw an idea to place armed troops at our schools, and realized that there are about 100,000 schools, and 1.5MM active military personnel.
Additionally, in this down economy, economic stimulus would be welcome. And this would be about as grassroots of a way to "share the wealth" back into communities.
