In this minute with SOTR I explain how to overcome fear about School Shootings…
Bureau of Justice Statistics data show that American schools are safer than ever. Since the peak of violence in 1993 when there were 200 assaults per 1,000 students, violence acts have dropped dramatically across all tracked categories.
So why lie about it? Because focusing on the frequent but still rare incidences of school shootings can be used to motivate voters. Only cultural change can save lives.
2 Timothy 1:7 says: For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline. Pray over your kids and plug into their schools. It’s time to put God back into education, not fear.
