    Sad Day On Dec. 14th 2012

    There is nothing sadder than turning on the TV or the internet and see more innocent children gunned down in school. Schools should be safe places for children to learn. Apparently another senseless school shooting oocured today with a disturbed young man commiting this act. How...

    Give a Boy a Gun

    New Era?

    I discussed this with several friends who are roughly the same age as me. We could not recall things like the Connecticut school shooting, or the Colorado cinema shooting happening back in the 1960s and 1970s. If anyone recalls comparable events from that era, please refresh my...

    Tragic

    schools are meant to be one of those places where you are supposed to be at ease and comfortable in. and to see these things happen...it takes away what a school stands for. and those parents who suffer their loses...it is all so tragic!

    This Must Not Become The "new Normal".

    I have a daughter in 5th grade. We had a shooting in the high school up the street the first day of school this year, then the Aurora shootings, now Newtown. When I picked her up from daycare that Friday, I told her about the Newtown shooting, as I knew she hadn't heard about it...

    It's Sad Not Only Because ...

    It's sad not only because of the people who get hurt, but because of all the things that must have happened to lead up to it. So many shooters were bullied or victimized in some way. A person should never become a shooter, and they shouldn't take out their pain on anyone else. I...

    I Think It's Sad That Kids...

    I think it's sad that kids aren't made to feel welcome in a school environment.  Most of the shooters have been kids who are made fun of and don't have anywhere to turn, so they lash out.  Perhaps if teachers take a more active role in making sure these students are...

    It Happened In My City

    when I lived back in germany, a shooting happened in my city. Thank god it wasn't my school. A guy shot himself and his teacher in front of the class. Then the whole school got evacuated, but nobody else got hurt. It was in the news papers for weeks and it was even on TV.

    My Junior Year

    There was a boy that, as the bell rang, stood up and shot himself in the head. A friend of mine that was in the class placed her hands over his wounds but he died soon after. It was hard and sad for everyone. Mostly because no one knew how much pain he was really in that lead up...

    Its All So Sad On So Many Levels

    Most of the perpetrators, if not all, were abused in some way as children, which does not excuse their actions, but makes it all the more tragic. Perhaps the most tragic thing is that the perpetrator almost always dies by his own hand before it is over, leaving the families to...

    Despite Their Educational Value

    I agree. I hate to see shootings take place at schools.  I think it would be so much better if they held them at the Car Wash, cleaning up would be much easier.
