Sad

The day before Donald Trump’s inauguration, a group of Philadelphia public school students asked the city’s school reform commission for protection for immigrants, females, minorities, Muslim students, LGBTQ people, and others “who may face heightened threats over the coming months and years.”

Why?

Because while they may only be kids, they see and understand what’s going on around them and are terrified – terrified of their own president and the hostility that swept him into office toward anyone who might look or act out of place on a 1958 episode of Leave it to Beaver.

And that’s sad.
