A Door Stop Can Save A Life Or Many!

Sometimes you come a cross an idea that just blows you away.

We're all about a safe, clean, happy world here at Planetpals.  

Sadly, our small world has been plagues with big mass shootings. We all find ourselves wondering what we can do to stop senseless acts of violence as in the recent Mass Shootings such as Parkland Florida and Sandy Hook. We want to know our kids and grandkids are going to school and it's safe. But we cannot control what happens at school, in a mall, any public place.

So, today I saw this post.  It said:

"After the Sandy Hook shooting, I gave both my nieces this little door stop to always keep in their backpacks. It truly pained me when I handed it to them, and I didn’t want to scare them, but it was out of love and they understood. In light of the recent shooting, I wanted to share this with all parents...and ANYONE else for that get themselves one (I always carry mine in my purse). Sure it’s small, but it can be powerful in keeping you safe if you ever have to barricade yourself in a room. If a gunman shoots out the door lock it will still keep the door from opening and may just buy you some time. I’m really sad posting this but a security expert shared this tip with me so I wanted to pass it on. I pray no one ever has to use it "

Such a simple thing. Though many doors open out, many open in, such as restrooms and homes. It works in this case.Put one in your purse or in your kids backpack.  Hopefully, no one you know will ever have to use it.  Available at places the Dollar Tree!  

Every classroom in America should have some on the teachers desk!
