First of all I think that President Obama should, after an appropriate period of time, go up there and present Presidential Medals of Freedom to the teachers who were killed that day. The teachers killed at Sandy Hook, all of whom were women, displayed, individually and in the aggregate, as much quick thinking, bravery, and courage as any military unit has ever dreamed of, and I think the country should recognize that.
Secondly, that school district could do worse than renaming the Sandy Hook elementary school to the Dawn Hochsprung elementary school. In addition, it would be a good thing if other school districts, especially in the towns that they were originally from, would name a school after each of the other six teachers who were killed.
Finally, I sincerely hope that this breaks the back of thee trend in the U.S. to demonize teachers as lazy, incompetent people who are only interested in their next paycheck. That never has been true and anyone who suggests that in the future should have a dunce cap put on their head and be sent off to sit in a corner until they come to their senses.
