    1                          Senate Resolution                        
    2         A resolution recognizing April 19, 2010, as “STOP Day”
    3         in the State of Florida.
    5         WHEREAS, violence in America’s schools threatens the core
    6  of the educational process and deprives students and teachers of
    7  opportunities to learn and teach without the fear of harm, and
    8         WHEREAS, “STOP Day” is intended to raise awareness of the
    9  growing epidemic of violence in America’s schools and motivate
   10  those who incite violence to opt for peaceful resolution of
   11  their grievances and a path of self-improvement and healing, and
   12         WHEREAS, students are urged to recite the “Stop Day”
   13  pledge, which states: “I pledge to be nonviolent and to respect
   14  my fellow classmates. I will report crime or acts of violence to
   15  appropriate officials or call Crime Stoppers to report incidents
   16  anonymously. I will not let the actions of a few make my school
   17  dangerous or unsafe. I want a safe learning environment and will
   18  work with my fellow students to make it so,” and
   19         WHEREAS, “STOP Day” participants are urged to show their
   20  support by developing anti-violence community service projects,
   21  inviting legal professionals to speak to student groups,
   22  conducting open-ended skits that allow student observers to
   23  predict outcomes of conflict based upon real-life choices,
   24  developing a process that encourages the reporting of school
   25  crime or violence, and conducting mock trials, and
   26         WHEREAS, “STOP Day” will give every student in Florida an
   27  opportunity to evaluate this critical issue and assess his or
   28  her role in preventing crime or violence in our schools, NOW,
   31  Be It Resolved by the Senate of the State of Florida:
   33         That the Florida Senate is aware of the importance of
   34  stopping violence in schools and recognizes April 19, 2010, as
   35  “STOP Day” in the State of Florida.
