    for our own safety

    I encountered the following phrase and it sounds incorrect to me. "We have to take action, for our own and the teachers' safety"

    What do you think about it?

    I think it's fine.
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”
