New Orleans area officials react swiftly to 'extreme' amount of school-related threats Thursday

One student in Jefferson Parish allegedly turned up in a picture on social media next to the caption, “future school shooter.”

In New Orleans, officials said, a teenager made threatening statements on Instagram about students and staff at Dr. King Charter School.

Let's bring back kindness and consideration.

In life, in love (our families) and in politics (which should pretty much eliminate Republicans in politics).

Let's be kind to each other here. Let's set an example. For the most part, I think we do.
