Willingness to educate and warn on this 'deadly activity' is progressing. Acknowledgement of the need to do so is saving
lives! There are school administrators, principles, teachers and board members in districts where children
have become victims of this 'game' AFTER the 'powers that be' decided NOT to implement a way
to warn and educate the parents, children and staff of it's existence!
I can only imagine
what they are going through, having the knowledge of this 'game', and choosing not to address it.
am amazed at the boldness and dedication of those that are WARNING and EDUCATING! YES! I am appalled at the lack of common
sense, the bold disregard of the urgency to communticate awareness, in those who choose not to..
Why wait until
it is too late? ... Why?
