It would be better for them to be thrown into the sea with a millstone tied around their neck than to cause one of these little ones to stumble." Luke 17:2
We know President Trump cares about the children. We know he did not bring this education mess. We do know that with him as our President, we can get help--without him as President, it is unimaginable as we have seen what the other side is willing to do--sacrifice the minds of children. We are here to support Pres Trump and at the same time support precious children. This letter is our way of getting children help that this President can give as with God's help--nothing is impossible.
Here's the Letter that's been sent to start the dialogue:
Dear President Trump:
Thank you for caring for our families and your incredibly hard work to MAGA. We appreciate it however, there is a matter of Emergency and no one else can help US solve it but you. It is the incredible high rate of suicide among our youth and the Ed system itself is a major part of the problem. Teen depression and suicide have been skyrocketing since 2011 and for many parents it is much too late!!!
Below are the words of our mental health expert who along with some parents and other experts, we humbly implore you to have a meeting and hear us out. We are grateful to see how you have sat down with businesses, tech leaders and many other groups-we simply ask for parents turn. We believe what is going on in society with children today can not be solved if you do not hear "our side". Unfortunately, try hard as she could, results from Betsy DeVos have not lined up well with your promise. The many trials to fix Education have failed so badly and stressed so many that the rate of suicide is uncomprehensible as many (shockingly even very young) are choosing to die rather than live!
This should garner a national outcry in the news but as you have experienced--many important things are not covered. Please heed these words:
"As a licensed clinical mental health counselor, I have worked in residential treatment centers, school-based and community-based mental health programs, and in private practice with actively suicidal teens. Health professionals across the board are seeing a sobering increase in anxiety, depression, self-harm and suicidality among our youth. Although the causes are complex, one certainty is that situational stressors such as high-stakes testing, and overly pressured teachers can trigger vulnerable children to desperate actions"...Joan Landes, CMHC
The lack of knowledge on the stress that is "in the schools" have caused increases in bullying and self-harm along with disrespect for parents and country (harmful socialist teaching is just one sign the ed system is soo off-track.)
We have Legions of concerned parents that stand with us but we can not do this without you. You have seen just the simple act of sitting down and hearing people made the difference. We ask simply for the Parents Turn for a sit down meeting with you. We believe God is with you and God will use you to free precious hurting children.
