Petition to Carroll County Public Schools

Fight For Our Lives As Students No More School Shootings

Since 2013, there have been nearly 300 school shootings in America — an average of about one a week. As an 11th Grade Student in Carroll County Maryland I have been worried to the point of being scared to walk in to school everyday. We are student's, we have the right to walk into school everyday expecting to receive our mandatory education in safety and comfort. I sit in class everyday and flinch if I hear a loud sound/bang worrying whether or not someone's shooting up our school. This is not acceptable to any extent. It's not like we have a choice to go to school or not, it's not like we have a choice to prevent our lives from being shot up from some deranged mentally Ill being. Due to education being mandatory we should not only be ensured but guaranteed that our safety is 100% taken care of while being in or around school properties. If you are a student or a parent you understand the Importance of having some sort of front line defense for these type of situations. If you are a human being you understand the devastating effects of losing ones life that closest to you. We should issue firearm/defensive training for select school system staff in each School. We should have a Police Officer or State Official in every school with a firearm.  We need someone in our schools that is approved to carry a firearm and that is  approved to be our first line of defense if that's what it takes to protect our lives, our loved ones, our destiny, our legacy as the future of our wonderful country. Regardless of what is to be decided upon in regards of this heartbreaking topic there needs to be a full proof system, policy that prevents us from losing the ones we love most. You are a flat out idiot if you believe that just locking the door and hiding in a corner while someone is in the process of invading our schools is enough, we are only sitting there waiting for them to shoot down that door and shoot us down too. Sign this if you care for your lives as students, sign this if you care about the lives of your kids, do this for us we are victims we are innocent lives that could be no longer. Stand Up Speak Up Make A Change Save Our Lives Please!!!! Share why you signed!!!! Don't allow us to be another statistic of how many losses were caused by school shootings due to lack of a protective policy. Don't be one of those people that say oh this will never happen to me because it can and it will if we don't take action; A 17-year-old student was shot in the parking lot of a Maryland high school on a Monday of February 2018, this is proof that it's everywhere even in our own state don't just pray for the losses pray for the policy that will prevent losses from happening.

Reading Pilgrim's Progress is not an Evil Cult Activity

Christians in China’s southern Yunnan province are under attack, facing long prison sentences as Chinese authorities try to eradicate their religion under the guise of cracking down on “evil cults.” In 2016, Yunnan officials formed an investigative team dedicated to wiping out the Three Grades of Servants religious sect, which China regards as a dangerous cult, and launched systematic attack against them. Only they didn’t just target Three Grades of Servants members but rather conducted mass arrests of more than 200 Christians across the province. About 40 of them are still in custody, their lawyers under official review just for defending them, and face long sentences in China’s cruel prisons. Ignoring their denials that they never belonged to the cult, Chinese officials sentenced six of these imprisoned Christians—Ju Dianhong (46 years old), Liang Qin (30 years old), Zhang Hongyan (34 years old), Zi Huimei (30 years old), Yang Shunxiang (29 years old), and Zhang Shaocai (42 years old)—to 4-13 years in prison. Even though Ju Dianhong and Liang Qin said they were never involved with the sect, they were accused of leading, recruiting members, doing missionary work, and spreading news of the apocalypse on behalf of the cult. In the court’s formal verdict, it outlined such broad parameters for what constituted an “evil cult” that some speculated Christianity could fall under the definition. It also said that the authorities found the accused in possession of Christian books such as Pilgrim’s Progress and Streams in the Desert, which they labeled “evil cult” materials. Another Christian, Tu Yan, has spent nearly a year in jail for the same allegations, awaiting her trial. She and her fellow Christian, Su Min, were running a hotel in Dali, Yunnan, when they were both arrested and handed cult charges. Tu Yan says she has never even heard of the Three Grades of Servants before, and her sister and father stoutly maintain that she only practiced Christianity. If they are not freed, these Christians face many perils in prison. The Chinese government infamously persecutes those it deems “enemies of the state,” many of whom are Christians, and Christian prisoners often suffer torture, beatings, and even death at the hands of prison officials. Others leave their cells in extremely poor physical and mental health from subjection to inhumane practices and medical neglect. However, because of you, hope is not lost. By signing this petition, you are taking a firm stand against these atrocities and asking President Trump and other world leaders to speak out and press China to release these innocent Christians unconditionally and immediately. Because China prefers to maintain an untarnished international image, its authorities have been known to free wrongly imprisoned individuals after experiencing international pressure. As a result, your intervention is tantamount. Sign this petition in order to tell China “enough” and urge President Trump to do everything in his power to free these innocent Christians!

"STATE OF EMERGENCY" (DRUG EPIDEMIC / NORTHERN NEW MEXICO) HELP SAVE OUR CULTURE

With national statistics, data , and high numbers of deaths,illnesses attributed too drugs and as well our failing public schools, as direct links to the  "Drug Epidemic",  in Northern New Mexico,  we have been placed at the top of national graphs and state counties as one  of the worst places for drug overdose, suicide and illness in the country. Thus, we the undersigned concerned tax paying citizens are "Demanding a "State of Emergency" be declared in the county of Rio Arriba, in the state of New Mexico. For several decades we have been in a heavily oppressed, repressed and dire situation in regard too loosing large numbers of souls too include : Teens,  young and old adults as well as elderly citizens too the drug infestation, both legal ( narcotic/opiate, ect... ) and  illegal ( heroin/meth/pink/cocaine, ect..) drugs. As the Federal Government  and DEA cracks down on prescription drug dispensing, the adverse effects have increased the use of heroin and thus, increasing higher incidences of Hepatitis-c, AIDS, Crime, and Criminal Activity in all facets our livelihood. The age groups of addiction has scattered in both directions, currently it has trickled down too adolescence and gone up in some cases too great-grandparent ages. Its is no longer a "FAD" or a "TREND" in many circles it is becoming a "RITE of PASSAGE" and a way of life in others. WE are demanding that;   1) Assessment, treatment, triage, substance abuse teams be dispatched throughout the county communities. ; 2) That a temporary centrally located "medical" detox-facility and housing area be established too address our addicted citizens needs, with hopes that a permanent facility be established in the near future.
