The Aftermath in Chardon In the wake of Monday's tragic shooting inside Chardon High School, District Superintendent Joe Bergant called for healing: "Hug your kids. Kids, hug your parents," he said in a Tuesday morning press conference. "Talk to your children. Don't text them. Don't Facebook them. Talk to them." On the next Sound of Ideas, we'll talk about how to talk to our kids, how to keep them safe, and how the community is responding to this crisis. Join the conversation Wednesday at 9.
