Petition to Carole Buhr, Putnam City Schools, Jeremy Porter, Kenneth Atteberry, Jeff Brown, Michelle Rowland

A Change in Administration or Policy at Putnam City North

In this academic school year, Putnam City North High School has faced multiple problems. The level of students missing school due to suspension is off the charts, and could all be avoided. Most of the suspensions were done out of “policy”, not out of logic or reason. We recently had a student expelled for wearing a vest, and another student suspended 2 weeks for protesting that. That violates the right to free speech.        Administration in my opinion needs to change. Under the supervision of Carole Buhr, our school has rapidly declined and the positive attitude of students has diminished. Mrs. Buhr attempts to silence any criticism of her, attempting to put herself up on a podium above other humans. Michelle Rowland tries to make “positive changes” in students but never lives up to her word. She recently gave me a paper about empathy so I could “change my attitude” and still learn in school. That’s not  the happy ending you hoped for, instead I was suspended for not fully grasping the assignment, which sacrificed my education for the sake of her ego.      The disciplinary policy of this school does not work, and issues will only continue to get worse without a change. Every day kids get punished and lose out on education, making them feel secluded from school and causing them to be more likely to get suspended again, only furthering the cycle. I truly believe there aren’t bad kids at this school, just poor discipline by the administration. Join me in my grievance against Putnam City North, and sign this petition

Petition to United Nations, President of the United States, Donald J. Trump

Universal Peace

Our world is plagued by wars, famine, natural disasters, and violence. The United Nations was created as a platform for all the nations to get together and help promote peace and prosperity for all of humanity. But so far we can see that even a tiny change takes years to agree upon. The time has come for the people to nudge the UN in the right direction. Wouldn't It be Easier if We All Spoke the Same Language??? The team at Noahide.org believes that if all the nations had a common language, a common set of principles, it would unite all the world's leaders and help bring world peace faster. It is time that we bring back the Universal Noahide Code, which helped establish judicial systems around the world hundreds of years ago.  Please Sign & Share Our Petition if you believe that the following should be instituted in the UN. Here is the Universal Noahide Code: 1. To believe in the one Creator, is to recognize The Being Who out of Love, created this world. We are commanded, all human beings, not to adore idols. 2. To respect the Creator and to praise Him, is to speak kindly of the Being Who sustains the world, for the good of humankind 3. To respect human life, is to acknowledge that we are all brothers and sisters, and that each one of us carries a divine spark. We are vessels of the Divine. 4. To respect marriage, is to respect the cornerstone of the society which is the family. We respect the young, the old, the weak and infirm. 5. To respect private property, is to lay the foundation of peaceful coexistence. We don't take what is not ours. 6. To respect the life of an animal, to feed the animal even before we eat, allowing the animal to rest, is to respect life itself. 7. To create a judicial system is to bring order to society, to our villages, and provinces, the nations we hail from, as there is no peace without justice. What is most beautiful about these laws, is the breathing room they provide. They resonate equally in Africa, (North) America, (South) America, Antarctica, Asia, Australia and Europe. They are like the guidelines of a great master of music or art: firm, reliable and comprehensive -- but only a base, and upon this base each people and every person may build. The Universal Noahide Laws are a sacred inheritance to all humanity, that every person on the face of the earth can use as the basis of his or her life. If enough of us will begin to incorporate these laws into our lives, we will see a different world very soon. The Institute of Noahide Code INC – United Nations-accredited NGO (ECOSOC) - headed by Rabbi Yaakov David Cohen, aims to promote peace, democracy and harmony in the world through the values represented by the seven laws of the Universal Noahide code UN.
