I hope we can agree on something and that is keeping all children safe while at play. As we head into the summer months my foot soldiers want children at play and not in emergency rooms for injuries known as “Trauma Season,” affiliation with gangs and the threat of being victimized by human trafficking. I hope you will agree to send our children to a safe and structure environment for nine weeks.
