Not the Value of Freedom.
It has become clear this morning our Public Schools have abandoned the mission of educating our youth in areas of study such as History, Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. Instead, the curriculum rests entirely within the Power and subsequent Value of Outrage.

I’m actively watching Florida Students being used as useful tools for a Socialist Left who would prefer the rights of American Citizens to defend themselves against their ideas be removed from our nation’s Bill of Rights.

Frankly, I’ve yet to hear anything other than emotion nourished by ignorance.

If the Children are our Future, we should Care More.

However, I am accustomed to disappointment. World History has provided that discomfort.
I am not drinking today… this is a sober moment.
