‘Stand Your Ground’ laws cast conflict resolution aside

By Letters to the Editor

To the Editor:
Years ago I was a counselor in two public schools for kindergarten through fifth grade.  It was a wonderful job because no matter how hokey I was with classroom presentations on topics ranging from combatting drugs and preventing bullying to manners and study skills, etc., the kids thought they were terrific. That was true whether I used puppets, balloon animals, music or art to make a point.  I knew that part of their appreciation was that they got a reprieve from classwork, but it did make me feel good.
