New York[RR]-Washington-DC-Houston–Seeking to comfort grieving families and shaken survivors, President Donald Trump spent more than an hour privately Thursday with some of those impacted by a Texas mass school shooting that killed 10 and wounded more than a dozen on May 18.
The latest spasm of violence in a year marred by assaults on the nation’s schools, the shooting at Santa Fe High School was the latest to test the president’s role as national comforter-in-chief. Trump met with more than two dozen people affected by the shooting, and did not publicly share his message for the grieving families and local leaders during a meeting at a Coast Guard base outside Houston.
Pamela Stanich — whose 17-year-old son, Jared Black, was among the eight students killed — was one of the parents who met with Trump, presenting him with a family statement and a copy of her son’s eulogy.
Trump “met with us privately and showed sincerity, compassion, and concern on making our schools safer across the nation,” she wrote in a Facebook post after the meeting. “He spent time talking to the survivors and asking on what happened and what would have made a difference. Changes are coming for the good. Thank you Mr. Trump.”
Rhonda Hart, whose 14-year-old daughter, Kimberly Vaughan, was killed at the school, told The Associated Press that Trump repeatedly used the word ‘wacky’ to describe the shooter and the trench coat he wore. She said she told Trump, “Maybe if everyone had access to mental health care, we wouldn’t be in the situation.”
Hart, an Army veteran, said she also suggested employing veterans as sentinels in schools. She said Trump responded, “And arm them?” She replied, “No,” but said Trump “kept mentioning” arming classroom teachers. “It was like talking to a toddler,” Hart said.
Reporters were not permitted to witness the meeting.
While the president was in Texas, Trump’s school safety commission met outside Washington, part of the president’s chosen solution to combat the rising tide of bloodshed after his brief flirtation with tougher gun laws after February’s mass killing at a high school in Parkland, Florida went nowhere.
A White House spokesman said Trump was “moved” by the shooting at Santa Fe High School, which left eight students and two substitute teachers dead. A student faces capital murder charges in the attack.
“These events are very tragic, whenever they happen. And you know, the president wants to extend his condolences and talk about the issue of school safety,” spokesman Raj Shah told Fox News Channel.
Also Thursday, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, whom Trump put in charge of the school safety commission, announced a $1 million grant to the Santa Fe school district to help with post-shooting recovery efforts.
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott and Sen. Ted Cruz, both Republicans, greeted Trump after Air Force One landed at a Houston military base. Abbott joined Trump for the short ride in the presidential limousine to a Coast Guard hangar where the meeting took place.
Trump then headed to a fundraiser at a luxury hotel in downtown Houston, the first of his two big-dollar events in Texas on Thursday. A White House official did not immediately respond to requests for details about how much money was to be raised, and who was benefiting, from the fundraising events.
After 17 teachers and students were killed during a February shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Trump said he would work to improve school safety, but has not called for new gun control legislation. He created the commission to review ways to make schools safer.
Trump briefly strayed from gun-rights dogma after the Parkland shooting, but quickly backpedaled. Abbott, a Republican and a staunch gun-rights supporter, has called for schools to have more armed personnel and said they should put greater focus on spotting student mental health problems. He’s proposed a few small restrictions on guns since the shooting.
Investigators say student Dimitrios Pagourtzis, 17, carried out the attack with a shotgun and pistol that belonged to his father. Classes at Santa Fe High School resumed Tuesday for the first time since the shooting.
As the Parkland students became vocal advocates for gun control, embracing their public positions as few school survivors had before, Trump quickly became a focal point for their anger. In Trump’s visit to Florida after the shooting, aides kept him clear of the school, which could have been the site of protests, and he instead met with a few victims at a local hospital and paid tribute to first responders at the nearby sheriff’s office.
Displaying empathy does not come naturally to Trump, who has been criticized for appearing unfeeling in times of tragedy, including when he sharply criticized a mayor in Puerto Rico in the aftermath of a deadly hurricane and fought with a Gold Star military family.
But Trump has at times displayed a softer side. On Wednesday, he returned a hug from an 8-year-old boy with muscular dystrophy who attended a White House event where he signed legislation to give patients the right to try experimental treatments.
Before Thursday, Trump was most recently in the Lone Star State on May 4 to attend the annual National Rifle Association convention. He pledged in his address that NRA members’ Second Amendment rights “will never, ever be under siege as long as I am your president.”
He also touted the administration’s “aggressive strategy on community safety” and mentioned armed guards, armed teachers, mental health and metal detectors, but did not mention assault rifles like the one used in Florida.

While doing research on the Internet for statistics after prayer and the Ten Commandments were taken from schools, I found conflicting statistics. You can sway the numbers to portray your agenda. Check out the resources at the end of my blog.
Beginning in 1964, for 18 years, the SAT scores dropped drastically until the 1980’s when Christian schools opened for competition. (1) The higher scores of the private Christian Schools helped stabilize the scores. The clientele of families enrolling in schools has become more diverse with people from many countries immigrating to the U.S.A.. Less rural and more urban families have caused a shift in the cultural dynamics of each community. (4) Then the SAT Test underwent several changes to dumb down the test so more people would pass. No longer can you compare the test results from the beginning until now.
I decided to take a different slant and explain what has happened to our country since those fateful decisions were enforced. I made a chart for clarity. Imagine youth who were not grounded in the application of the Ten Commandments in their daily lives, how this has warped our perspectives on life. No wonder we spend more money on inmates that educating students.
|The Ten Commandments||Results of not being taught the Ten Commandments|
|1. You shall have no other gods before Me.||Church attendance has continued to decline. People are into Horoscopes, witchcraft, zombies, and communicating with the dead. Atheism is rising. People choose sports or extra-curricular activities over church events.|
|2. You shall not make idols.||Sports figures, movie stars, musicians, and rich people are held in more esteem than God. Illegal drug usage is up 6000%. (2)|
|3. You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain.||Foul language is allowed on television, radio, and movies. The youth embrace swearing in music and daily speaking because they were not taught to honor God.|
|4. Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.||Businesses are open on Sunday to make a profit and people choose work over attending church. Sporting events, movies, and other activities take people away from their homes so they can’t rest.|
|5. Honor your father and your mother.||The home does not expect respect of mothers and fathers. The divorce rate has sky-rocketed. Many women choose to raise their children without a father. Blended families struggle to unify. Same sex families and transgender families are on the rise. More elderly parents are forgotten. Child abuse cases increased 2300%. (2)|
|6. You shall not murder.||The crime rate is unbelievable. Youth are bringing guns to school to kill people who made them angry. We hear of a murder every day. Television, movies, and video games have glamorized killing, thus numbing the senses of our youth to respect each person as the creation of God. Teen suicide is up 450%. (2)|
|7. You shall not commit adultery.||Divorce continues to rise even in the Christian communities. We have become self-centered-it’s-all-about-me-and-my-needs. People lack commitment. Divorce rates have increased 350%. Teen pregnancies escalated. (2)|
|8. You shall not steal.||People have come to the point where when they see something they want, they find a way to steal it instead of work for it. Criminal arrests of teens increased 150%. (2)|
|9. You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.||All we have to do is look at our government leaders who demonstrate that lying is acceptable, just don’t get caught. Violent crimes increased 350%.|
|10. You shall not covet.||Our society wants to keep up with their neighbor’s home, vehicle, clothes, and private school, in order to look good at work or in their community. Back-biting at work, to get a promotion, is a form of coveting. Bullying may be a form of coveting others in reverse. The bully thinks he is cooler, smarter, and better in every way. Pray for their hearts to be healed of hate.|
I began teaching in 1971, retired in 2008, and have been a Title 1 Tutor ever since. I have seen too many changes to mention. The biggest change is the lack of respect for authority, peers, and parents. A larger per cent of students show little regard to being truthful and co-operative. Their crude, rude language reflects the way they dress and act. The Founding Fathers of the United States predicted this would happen if education was no longer based of Christian principles.
Prayer to restore Christian fundamentals of the Ten Commandments in the public schools.
Father God, please forgive us…our parents and grandparents for not defending the Christian rights in the schools. The confusion over separation of church and state was the biggest lie of the enemy. The Founding Fathers did not want the government to become a religion like Great Britain and force everyone to have one church. Please take the scales off of our eyes so we can see clearly what You, Lord, want us to do to stand firm in our faith to prevent more freedoms from being taken away. I pray for this generation of youth to recognize what was stolen from them and persevere until schools are safe, creative, productive, and godly. We need a miracle, but You are in the miracle business. I ask this prayer in the name of Jesus. Amen.
