Education group: Stop firing guns on New Year’s

FORT WAYNE—The president, staff, board of directors, students and supporters of Famious Williams’ Reservoir Park School of Music, Mathematics and Technology—an innovative learning center near Cooper Teen Center in the vicinity of the newly named Lebamoff Reservoir Park, formerly LaRez—proposes a “Silent Entrance of the New Year 2014.”

Families are urged to light up their homes by turning on all the lights for one hour preceding the New Year; attend Watch Night Service at a church of their choice, without fear; and gun possessors refrain from firing weapons at the incoming New Year.

From a musical standpoint, the traditional firing of weapons on the advent of the New Year is not a harmonic sound people should care to remember. Secondly, from a mathematical standpoint the fear factor of gunshots is multiplied. And, finally the show of gun firing restraint serves as a New Year’s resolution to, as Brenda Robinson puts it, “do better.” From a technological standpoint one can communicate this proposal to family, friends and acquaintances by computer.

Call Famious Williams’ Reservoir Park School of Music, Mathematic and Technology for farther instruction and support at (260) 203-4940.

Do the math; figure it out. Consider the schools motto: “Those who study music and mathematic understand technology better and accomplish more.” Again as Brenda Robinson writes: “Let’s do better.”
