What has our society come to?? I am sickened with sadness after learning about the shooting that happened at the elementary school in CT, just days after the mass shooting in Portland, OR.. The elementary school is for grades kindergarten through 4th. The news reports that there are at least 27 dead and most of them are children. The gunman was found dead on school premises.
To the 24-year-old Jerk Who Committed Mass Murder at Sandy Hook Elementary School in CT on 12/14/12:
Who do you think you are to take any life? How dare you murder and victimize children and people! If you were that miserable, you should’ve handled “you” on your own without taking the innocent lives of others!! I don’t know if you turned the gun on yourself or not, but either way you are a coward and the worst example of humanity! There is absolutely no justification for your actions! You have ruined lives and families forever! This day can never be erased and the lives of so many families will be forever changed.
My heart hurts and feels sorrow for the all victims effected by this tragedy. I realize this was not a random act, but mass shootings at schools are becoming more frequent. When I was a kid we didn’t have to worry about being shot at, while at school. Perhaps beat-up, but definitely no guns! It seems as if schools have become a “prey-ground” for our children! What can we do to end the violence?? How do we best keep our children safe? Is there anything, “we, the parents” can do to ensure the safety of our children?
