President Trump is a leader, and he’s going to take action to protect and make America safe.
During the session, he listened to concerns and suggestions as the open talk began into a possible starting point for taking action against gun violence.
The tone and tenor of the session was important.
All of the students spoke with great compassion, while holding back their tears. They also offered solutions. The meeting didn’t just carry emotion, but also rationality. It wasn’t a shouting match or placing blame. It was to find an end. (VIDEOS BELOW)
