Now for a quick-thinking, death-stopping edition of…
Here’s to You!!!!
So I raise my glass and say, “Here’s to you, Cypress Lake hero!”
I don’t actually know his name. Very few people do. But he’s a high school student who, when another student on his school bus pointed a gun at someone else and threatened to kill, he and two others leapt up and tackled him, likely saving one or more lives. Yay! They’re heroes!
So they went to school where they got awards and medals not unlike the final scene from Star Wars…
Oh, no, wait, actually he got suspended. For being involved in an incident “where a weapon was present”.
Well, NYRA and others are on it! My always awesome fellow board member Jeffrey Nadel is on the case and has appeared on a couple of news spots and radio shows talking all about it.

Go there, watch the video, and sign the petition. And get others to do the same.
Seriously, that principal just isn’t backing down on this, insisting that she “knows the full story”. After the original suspension, they made up some junk about the heroic student being insubordinate and uncooperative, something they added after this story got media attention and they wanted to cover their tracks. Yeah, sure, okay. 🙄
Because the student should totally have instead done nothing like a good little boy and watched his fellow students get killed. And because he didn’t allow people to die in front of him, he now has this suspension blemish on his record because “only I know the full story, he was uncooperative! uncooperative!” Genius!
Come on. Expunge the suspension and move on. The school fighting this is nonsense, even by school administrator standards.
