So, I don't think I stressed the importance of needing lots of people at the school board meeting. Yea, please come. Then, we've got to take away the all-access pass area recruiters have in OUR schools. Around the nation school districts are doing this and it's highly feasible in our area. And, if some people are not down with coming to the youth and militarism coalition meeting, I think there's lots of other ways to work together on this issue. Ok, see you all at the school board meeting?
