BROKEN WINGS

Pamela Alderman's avatar Pamela Alderman Vote Code: 66688

Recently, we witnessed the historic youth march in D.C., remembered the 19th anniversary of the Columbine High tragedy, and learned about many young people suffering from bullying. Meanwhile, some current solutions only seem to trigger more verbal bullets and D.C. bullying. But to help our kids break out of the cocoon—those who are hurting, isolated, bullied, or struggling with caustic emotions—we all need to help cultivate an environment of safety and peace. To help solve our national problem of bullying and school shooting, what steps can we take to start a positive butterfly effect? Broken Wings invites a response. Like the monarch butterflies clustering on trees to survive, let’s work together to help bring an end to the suffering, chaos, and brokenness. From the broken wings of Columbine, Parkland, and Santa Fe—let’s make new choices for a better future. Let’s help heal our nation.
