Help Florida Student Who Died in JROTC Uniform Get the Full Honors Military Burial He Deserves

Published

on

Fifteen-year-old Peter Wang was among the 14 students and three faculty members killed in the deadliest high school shooting in American history on Feb. 14 at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.

The JROTC Cadet is an absolute hero. He was last seen in his uniform, holding doors open and allowing other students, teachers, and staff to flee to safety. Wang was shot in the head and killed while saving lives. Now, there’s a WhiteHouse.org petition to give him a military burial.

“His selfless and heroic actions have led to the survival of dozens in the area. Wang died a hero, and deserves to be treated as such, and deserves a full honors military burial,” the petition reads.

The petition needs to reach 100,000 signatures by March 18 to get an official response from the White House, according to WhiteHouse.gov. There are nearly 70,000 signatures at the moment.

Alaina Petty and Martin Duque, both only 14, were also cadets in the school’s Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps program who were killed. The US Army is awarding medals for heroism to all three students.

Wang’s act of selflessness was not unheard of according to one student who told mourners that she forgot her lunch the day before the shooting and he gave his lunch to her instead.

Touched by Wang’s act of heroism, West Point even honored him.

“West Point has given posthumous offers of admissions in very rare instances for those candidates or potential candidate’s whose actions exemplified the tenets of Duty, Honor and Country,” West Point said in a statement.

Get ready for high flying.

Los Angeles International Airport — also known as LAX —  has announced that it will permit travelers to bring small amounts of legal marijuana through security in their carry-on bags.

“The Los Angeles Airport Police Department will allow passengers to travel through LAX with up to 28.5 grams of marijuana and 8 grams of concentrated marijuana,” reads a statement on LAX’s official website, which was posted in September 2018.

California passed Proposition 64, aka the Adult Use of Marijuana Act in 2016, meaning that as of of January 1, 2018, it became legal in California “for individuals 21 years of age or older to possess up to 28.5 grams of marijuana and 8 grams of concentrated marijuana for personal consumption.”

If you’re traveling with marijuana through LAX, study up on the laws in your origin and destination airport before packing your bags.

In a time when you hope a news story is fake, this tale about gay penguins will make you want the news to actually be real. And it is!

Love is love. Even penguins know that. The large flightless seabirds also know that when two souls find love, having a baby is often the next step. That being said, a pair of gay penguins at a Denmark zoo “kidnapped” a straight couple’s hatchling and tried to take it in as their own, a zookeeper says.

And it was all caught on video.

Trump to Female Reporter: ‘You’re not thinking. You never do’

Published

on

President Donald Trump insulted a female reporter in the Rose Garden on Monday, telling her she “never” thinks before asking a question. Trump called on Cecilia Vega, a White House reporter for ABC News and started making a joke out her.

“She’s shocked that I picked her,” said Trump as a flock of staffers behind him — mostly men — smiled or laughed. “She’s, like, in a state of shock.”

“I’m not,” Vega said, rising from her seat. “Thank you, Mr. President.”

Trump, apparently mishearing “thank you” as “thinking,” responded with a seemingly unprovoked jab: “I know you’re not thinking. You never do.”

A White House transcript alleges Trump said “not thanking,” a non-sequitur given Vega had said “thank you” immediately prior. Now that’s pathetic.
