16. It is great that you are allowing your daughter

to work through this situation with your assistance.

As to not calling the Secret Service, may I make an observation. Actions should have consequences. Stop and think about the Nixon era. If Gerald Ford had not pardoned Nixon and if Nixon had faced legal ramifications for his actions, it is possible that we might be living in an entirely different world then the one we live in today. Too many people in Government have been involved in heinous behavior without a second thought because they know that they will not be held accountable. I realize that school children are not the same as Government officials but without consequences for any wild threats made against our President, the de facto lesson they will have learned is that their words are acceptable. Words can result in action, maybe not against the President but against anybody that disagrees with the ultra right wing nuts.

We live in a time period where there is the possibility that some people will spin out of control. We should remember the saying "All that is necessary for evil to succeed is for good men to do nothing." To put it bluntly, it is not acceptable for anybody to think that it is acceptable to make any kind of threats against the President of the United States. At minimum, a comment to the Principal that the Secret Service COULD be called in should drive home the consequences of what has been occurring in his/her school.
