Letter: Our children deserve better

It saddened me to hear that students are stressed and acting out in school. It’s no wonder. Look at their role models: elected officials who spread half-truths and lies and use outdated data to support wild claims. They should apologize for their poor behavior. It’s up to elected officials to calm the waters and assure young people that they will work to make the world a better place for them.

Our children are our most precious treasure. Each adult in our community must model responsible behavior. No name-calling, intimidation or threatening folks who hold different opinions. It will take all of us to repair our community and heal our planet. Our children deserve no less.
