Because of what happened today in Moore, I think I should post here again to try to encourage some level of action.
It's already all over the news, and you either know about it or must've been drunk and passed out the whole day if you don't. But what really gets to me about the whole situation are the twenty dead kids as of the last time I looked at the news articles on my iGoogle (others are in the hospital in varying conditions, some I think might still be missing). Those twenty, along with the hurt and missing, never got a chance to vote. They never got to decide that tax dollars should not be spent on safety standards for their two destryoed schools. That's why I e-mailed every city official of Moore and representative I could find an e-mail address for, wrote to my local county party office (because the other party didn't seem to have a damn e-mail address that I could find), and started a petition on Change.org and posted it on Reddit. I will now post all the relevant URLs here, and you can spread them as you please. The end goal of my actions are to encourage public officials to create on-site underground storm shelters, equipped with water drains to counteract flooding, for all schools in any event of rebuilding, remodeling, or constructing schools.
