And the next medal proposed will be for the teachers and students murdered in schools for doing their job or attending a class? Federal/public employees should not be treated any differently (or viewed as more deserving) than the average American teacher or student who face a real threat everyday they go to school. Instead of recognizing the victims, why not just recognize the problem and fix it. That would result in less victims. Your cowardice and hypocrisy are once again on full display.
