Announcing the CVE Grants Program | Homeland Security Today, Secretary Johnson announced the new Countering Violent Extremism (CVE) Grant Program to support community-led initiatives across the country to build resilience to the threat of violent extremism. This is the first federal assistance program devoted exclusively to providing local communities with the resources to counter violent extremism in the homeland. In addition to state, local and tribal governments, non-profit organizations and institutions of higher education are eligible to apply. Violent extremism is not a threat we can ignore, particularly in light of events from Orlando to San Bernardino to Charleston. Terrorists are promoting hateful ideologies to encourage travel overseas and attract young people to violence, and the Internet makes it easier for them to do so. Our new grant program will enable more communities prevent and deter violent extremism in these core areas:

Newtown Grapples with Tragedy as Hero Teacher, 3 More Children Are Laid to Rest The heartbreaking succession of funerals continued in Newtown, Conn. on Wednesday as mourners said goodbye to a hero teacher who sacrificed her life for her students, a 7-year-old boy who dreamed of being a firefighter, a 6-year-old girl who wanted to be a veterinarian, and a 6-year-old called "Silly Caroline" by her family because she made everyone smile. Bagpipes wailed, church bells tolled and tears flowed as teacher Victoria Soto was laid to rest. Soto, 27, has been hailed as a hero for dying while trying to protect her students, some of whom managed to escape a gunman who would slaughter Soto, five more school employees and 20 kids before taking his own life last week. "She was a hero -- a true hero," said Soto's cousin Robert Matos. "She had the perfect job. At the family request, singer Paul Simon performed the "Sounds of Silence" at Soto's service. At the funeral for 7-year-old Daniel Barden, hundreds of firefighters formed a long blue line outside St.

Drops of Awesome | Daring Young Mom This post has been in my heart and on my mind for over a year now. I’ve talked about it. I’ve prayed about it. I’ve taught about it. It was a sunny school morning and I was walking Magoo to the bus stop. When it’s time for school, he says goodbye and heads up the hill to the bus. As we got half way to the bus, Magoo reached out and grabbed my hand in an uninhibited way that I knew wouldn’t happen many more times. I squeezed his hand, felt the rare Seattle sun on my face, and told him I loved him. Nearly. Just at that moment, the thought came into my mind, That’s awesome that you’re walking him to the bus stop and putting on this “mother of the year” act today. My bubble had burst. Then another thought came. This started me thinking of all the times I do something good while beating myself up for all the times I haven’t been perfect. You’re worshiping in the temple? Wow. That was really nice of you to offer to watch your friend’s kids while she had surgery. Drops of Awesome!
