• How many children will die in school shootings? Depends on if we try to stop them. How many teens will commit suicide? Depends on if we try to understand. How many kids will go to college? Depends on if we try

    • This reminds me of media diversions of the publics’ attention. I think the reason so many of these issues get looked over by everyday people is that modern-day media is always bringing up something else such as memes, or something some political leader said that may make you upset depending on which political side you lean towards. Although these issues are near and dear to many people, diversions can happen at any moment which may distract them from the true issues we are facing today, which gives political leaders an excuse to ignore them.
