Coupled with the old, known-obsolete, insane policy of 'Get Under Your Desks' (Duck and Cover), will result in your children's mass agonizing terrified deaths, completely unnecessary.
You can and should save their lives, as they trust you.
How? Do not send them to these schools until they reject the old, Fatal earthquake protocol (Duck and Cover, Get Under Your Desks, Stand Next To This Wall)
and ADOPT IMMEDIATELY THE LIFESAVING PROTOCOL THAT IS KNOWN TO BE FAR BETTER IN A LARGE QUAKE IN OLDER ARCHITECTURE: THIS IS CALLED THE TRIANGLE OF LIFE.
Please, parents and all friends of children, research this and you will be horrified at the status quo which guarantees millions of your children's horrific deaths.
Wake up, please. There is still time, and all it takes is one morning or one afternoon. One Day. No money to speak of, either, so don't think that they will say 'Sorry, there's no funding for this change...'
Cheap. Quick. Yes, we can do more than the suggestion below, to make it even better. (Put doors which are easily operated by children in every classroom for a quick emergence from the building). But now, this will at least give them a fighting chance.
The New Madrid Fault has gone done cracked before and it seems like it might could do it again soon. We've had the warnings given to us. And we have believed our authorities that this is 'the thing' to do: just send our children to these people who obviously don't know or worse, don't care - that this protocol is A KNOWN-FATAL ONE.
PARENTS and FRIENDS OF CHILDREN: top priority please for you who are in those States in the USA on a known overdue fault line which has had mega-magnitude slides.
The consensus/mandate of 'Duck and Cover'and the accompanying insistence on ignoring the lifesaving technique of 'Triangle of Life' protocol demonstrates your leaders HAVE NO RESPECT for your intelligence, and no interest in your and your children's well-being; quite the contrary. Otherwise the school boards would have already changed to the Triangle of Life.
Think about your children being forced to obey the insane, obsolete Duck and Cover policy when the earthquake begins... not even trying to exit the building with any speed or efficiency, and demanding your children 'Get Under Your Desks!' which will cause painful, agonizing, horrendous suffering - and then almost guaranteed death for the majority of them.
Look at your children tonight as they sleep.
They are so helpless, innocent and obey their teachers without question, their principals with something bordering on fear. They look to you, however, for the last word, and are trusting YOU to keep them safe.
