Camden — More than 25 teenagers from the Maine Teen Advocacy Coalition staged a "die-in" protest at Camden Harbor Park June 12 to bring attention to school shootings and the government's lack of action to protect students. Camden Hills sophomore Frances Ostensen used a bullhorn to call out the names of students who have died in school shootings in 2018 and numerous high school students collapsed to the grass to represent those slain.

What are the facts? "Fake news?" If they would be "free thinking" they would not have died?  Good job, students. Hopefully some day you will change the world we live in. I think you can.

If only these students could be taught the facts then maybe they would not be so quick to jump on the liberal ,socialist band wagon that is tearing at the fabric of free thinking and individual thought we used to be taught in our educational institutions.
