If someone decides to set up a tiger breeding farm in the middle of a town, and there are several incidents of tigers getting loose and eating children, you don't react by trying to teach all the town's children how to increase their chances of surviving a tiger attacking their school. YOU CLOSE DOWN THE TIGER FARM.Bobcobbagob wrote: ↑Thu May 25, 2023 7:33 pmThat would be a cool book, but it wouldn’t teach them anything about how to survive a school shooting.SallyMae wrote: ↑Thu May 25, 2023 4:54 pmTitle: Pooh and Friends Stand Up for Safety
Once upon a time in the Hundred Acre Wood, Winnie the Pooh and his friends had an important mission. They wanted to make their world a safer place. They knew that some things needed to change, especially when it came to guns. So, they decided to become activists for gun control.
Chapter 1: A Thoughtful Bear
Winnie the Pooh sat under a big oak tree, his honey jar by his side. He thought about his friends and how they could work together to create a safer environment. Pooh realized that they needed to start by learning more about the issue of gun safety.
Chapter 2: Tigger Takes Action
Tigger bounced around the Hundred Acre Wood, spreading the word about gun control. He invited everyone to a meeting at Rabbit's cozy home. There, they discussed the importance of keeping guns away from those who might misuse them and how to oppose politicians who supported gun proliferation.
Chapter 3: Owl's Wisdom
Owl, the wise old bird, shared his knowledge with the group. He explained the importance of understanding both sides of the issue and finding common ground with others. Owl's words encouraged everyone to be respectful when discussing gun control with those who held different opinions.
Chapter 4: Piglet Finds Courage
Piglet was scared to speak up, but he knew that making a change required bravery. With the support of his friends, Piglet found the courage to attend community meetings and express his concerns about gun safety. His small voice became stronger with each word he spoke.
Chapter 5: Eeyore's Empathy
Eeyore, despite his gloomy nature, had a big heart. He reminded everyone that supporting gun control meant caring for the safety and well-being of all. Eeyore encouraged his friends to have empathy for those affected by gun violence and to never give up on their mission.
Chapter 6: Rabbit's Rally
Rabbit used his organizational skills to plan a peaceful rally for gun control. Pooh and his friends created signs with powerful messages, such as "Safety First" and "Protect Our World." They marched together, spreading their message of peace and advocating for change.

2. Tigger bouncing joyfully, inviting his friends to the meeting with a big smile on his face.
3. Owl perched on a branch, sharing his wisdom with Pooh and friends gathered around him.

Remember, this book teaches children about advocating for gun control in a peaceful and respectful manner, while opposing politicians who support gun proliferation. It aims to empower young minds to take action for a safer world.
It would teach advocacy, which is great…they should definitely learn how to take control over their lives in the whole sense, but nothing about how to stay alive during a shooting.
They need to learn how to take as much control of their situation they can, within seconds. Not just advocacy that might take months if not years… they need to know what to do within 30 seconds.
Sure, tigers are perfectly safe in the hands of well trained tiger owners. But you still CLOSE DOWN THE TIGER FARM.
Those well trained tiger owners might even be using their pet tigers to defend their homes. But you still CLOSE DOWN THE TIGER FARM.
