Everyone Else See This the Same??

It’s not THAT hard to see, right? As a Nation, we are attempting to deal with an issue in PUBLIC SCHOOLS (#NeverAgain), and the “leaders” making life or death decisions about funding and legislation, have NEVER ATTENDED a PUBLIC SCHOOL?!!!

I remember the year that my High School (Olathe North H.S., Olathe, KS… go Eagles…) began hosting an ARMED OPD officer daily. Well intentioned. That was the kind way of saying the idea needed a better solution. In the end, it is the ARMED POLICE OFFICER who won the conversation. And since 1996 an armed Olathe Police Dept. Officer has been on campus.

From a community stand point, it is a perfect coalescence of Protect and Serve. Immediate, obvious, informative dialogue daily for both sides, the Protectors and their ’employers’. But, as a student, back in my day, get off my lawn, let me tell you a story you little… I felt it was gas on a fire. If you don’t want a gas fire, do not bring a gas can to the fire. In an environment openly attempting to recreate a prison system in order to protect the students, the idea of bringing a side arm into a prison seems illogical.

I’m sure there are Standard Operational Procedures guidelines that would be available for running a prison, a juvenile detention center, you know, a for profit organization that specializes in “that sort of thing”, maybe some former Sherriff Guy could ADVISE us all on, maybe someone knows a FAMILY MEMBER or something, who once knew a PRINCE they once met at DEVOS who could EDUCATE US, SECRETARY….

I’m not the only one seeing this, right?!!

Hope I’m not… wow

I think it turned out VERY well. I hope you agree.

Busy morning! Kids made it to school, three stores to hit today. Grocery getter extraordinaire! And its raining, so traffic sucks. Mondays are fun.

I’m going to attempt a daily post here and, hopefully soon, start a livestream each day on Twitch.tv/mrcharbonneau. I need to assess my livestreaming tools to see what I can or cannot do. I don’t have much cash available for cameras and mics, so I’ll see how this laptop camera looks. BUT, that will be another day.

Be sure to check out my GoFundMe and Patreon. I’ll keep going if there’s an appetite for an independent, funded by THE PEOPLE, to change the ELECTION SYSTEM. That’s the question, how to pay for this. I’m a stay-at-home-father of two with a wife who is a PICU nurse. (Pediatric Intensive Care Unit… actually CRRT nurse. She specializes in hearts and circulatory… but anyway) I am pretty much doing this on my own as a SECOND JOB.

A second job that I don’t want right now. Don’t have the funding for. Will, in essence, be DOING FOR FREE. Will have a 1:1,000,000 chance of success. And will be the most EMOTIONALLY AND PHYSICALLY trying thing I’ve ever done. In 2016 I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. I’ve been learning how to diabetes for a couple years now, and for the last 365 days I’ve been successful at not dying! Last year in March I caught an atypical pneumonia, my blood sugar was over 500 and was in the hospital for three days.

It was the best thing that could have happened to me. Seriously. It got me to focus for three days on what I needed to do. Scary, yes. The family was scared, too. Pneumonia sounds horrible! No fun at all.

But, just another reason to change this country for the better. Having a terminal illness sharpens the mind, forces one to ensure priorities are in order. I’m only 39, but I know how I will likely die- “complications due to T1 diabetes”.

…that or “random bus”. Details. whatever.

Keep your head UP!!
