    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!

    New Era?

    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.

    It's A Mad World We Live In Today

    If there's anything I hate it has to be school shootings, last year in December of 2012 we had one of the worst school shootings in American history, the sandy hook elementary killings. It was a sad day for America because we lost so much innocent young children and teachers due...

    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.

    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...

    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...
