    Shootings, Bombings, Rapes, Child Murderers, Where Does It Stop?

    I have just heard about the man that went into a nursing home and killed 8 people. It just makes me sick. I don't understand all these random killings of innocent people. It's almost like you can't feel safe to go anywhere anymore. We have shootings in schools, churches, fast...

    This Just In

    It's gotten so that I very seldom read the paper because I know I'm gonna read something I'd be better off not knowing about, even if it's something as simple as an ad for a lost pet. I can get depressed all day just from reading something like that, and I can't get it off my...
