Zach was a summer camper at Colonial Elementary Summer Camp for several years. He then became a Junior Counselor. Zach was wonderful young man who gave so much to others. We reconnected at Riverdale where my daughter taught. He was always happy to see me. He loved talking about our summer camp memories.

I AM SIGNING BECAUSE I LIVED IN HOUSTON, TEXAS FOR 10 YEARS, MY OVER ALL ASSESSMENT, NOT FIT FOR HUMAN OR ANIMAL HABITATION. TEMPERATURES REACH 110 DEGREES F, HUMIDITY CAN REACH 100%, TO HAVE THESE YOUNG MEN DO THESE WORKOUTS IN THIS HORRIFIC CLIMATE IS JUST PLAIN MURDER.

I have a athletic young grandson that I love very much. No family should have to go through what this family did-and it could have been prevented. NO EXCUSE

COVID-19 lives 3 days on plastic. Artificial turf is plastic. It is potentially a high transfer point for COVID-19 that will infect players, their families, and the players and families from visiting teams. Please also sign my petition asking the United States Consumer Product Safety Commision to ban all artificial turf installations and replacements until solutions are found to stop COVID-19 and it is somewhat "controlled". Please find and sign it now to help save some lives. Also, go to ConsumerProductSafetyCommision.gov and file a complaint against the product. I've done 14 months of research on the dangers. If you need fire, heat, infection or injury information please email me at sstewartsaunders@gmail.com Thank you

END CHILD EXPLOITATION ON OMEGLE!

please check out this campaign:
http://chng.it/mrFfBjBDdw

a few months ago, I encountered a user on Omegle displaying child pornography. I was completely horrified. I made detailed reports to every law enforcement agency and advocacy group I could find, but most told me there was nothing they could do, or didn't reply at all. my local police told me that reporting to the FBI was the best option.

I would encourage anyone who has witnessed anything remotely illicit on Omegle to file detailed reports with the FBI, as well as the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. I've included links below. (I believe the reports can be anonymous, if you prefer.)

https://www.fbi.gov/tips
https://report.cybertip.org/

I have also made news tips to several news outlets, and I would encourage you to do the same. news tip locations can be easily found by searching "___ news tips" or something similar.

thank you for your time.

If my niece’s volleyball coach in Madisonville, Texas had been informed and well educated about heat stroke; my niece would not have needed to have a near death experience. Thanks to the quick thinking of the football coach; my niece was put in a ice bath to cool down her body’s core temperature. The volleyball coach did not understand that the heat, even in the morning, on a very hot and humid summer day AND the lack of hydration is the perfect combination to cause a heat stroke. This was an unnecessary and AVOIDABLE experience for my niece. The schedule noted the volleyball athletes were to be working out in the gym that morning. Please teach hydration first, and water breaks often.... listen to the athlete when they say they are hot. Watch vigilantly for signs of distress during work outs/practice.

My daughter is a survivor of Heat Stroke, but so many other parents can’t say that....Like Zach’s! These schools and states MUST DO BETTER!

Oh the memories of summer training but to lose a friend much less a child - unforgivable. I almost died just visiting Amsterdam in a European heat wave- they have no air conditioning. I fortunately knew what was happening I got in the bathtub my soouse begged for ice they had me in ice bath while we waited for an ambulance. It was scary waiting being out of the country. My heart is broken for you.
