Miami-Dade Schools Police Chief Ian Moffett kicked off the week’s observance with third graders at Earlington Heights Elementary School, urging the youngsters to never touch a gun, and to immediately alert an adult when they see one. “See something, say something, do something,” Moffett said to the crowd.
The third graders later shared what they learned. “If you see a gun, don’t touch it,” said student Jimmie Neal. “Just tell an adult or a guardian.”
“Don’t pick it up and go tell an adult,” said student Adrianna Davis.

Could it be Eddie Eagle Program in the Classrooms? Or maybe they are just plagiarizing….
You know, I don’t care. It is good teaching. Safety is what we are after, not accolades.

It’s like…like…they realized that children are innately curious and should be taught what to do, not just to fear something. Amazing
P.S. Eddie is the best anthropomorphic eagle this side of Gus, the GSU mascot.
