    Sound off

    I HAD a dream!

    In the midst of school shootings we hear all kinds of self righteous indignation directed toward the "causes" of the violence. Inculcated into "shattered dreams of youth" is the emotional pain of being singled out by shame wrongly induced by our fellow man. Mental illness is culprit. But, what would mental illness be without emotional pain? Mental health!

    We have an opportunity to strike a blow against shame. Remove the "white Santa teacher" from teaching. He has no business shooting down dreams of students. We have no business in failing to rebuild and preserve a student's dreams to the best of our ability.

    No justice, no peace.

    Our country was founded on fighting for peace. We are obviously not done yet.
