This is senseless events of random shootings has to stop! These were innocent little children & loving teachers that had nothing to do with this young man. We have to ask ourselves, "How did he get to this point?" Now what do we all do about it, set back & complain or get out & do our part to make our world a safer place. Change happens from one person to the next. I don't have the answers but I do know I will let others know how I feel about making changes. Maybe one person will listen & then another & it goes on & on from there untill enough peopel hear it & act on it.
If we are to have guns out there so easy to purchase, then we need to keep them put up from others & teach our children what is right from wrong, when & how to use guns. talk to them about what to do if you find one. Keep them put away where others don't have such easy access. I don't have the answers, I just know for me, we do not or never will ever have guns at my house.
My children had a hard time sending their kids to school today, I'm not sure I could have if my children were still at home. My daughter ask her son what they did at school if someone came in their school that didn't belong there, which turned out to not be much of anything. He then ask her what she did when she was in school, she had to tell him all they did was tornado & fire drills. He asked her why & she really couldn't answer him. How do you tell a child we didn't have people just going around shooting guns& killing people. It just goes to show how far we are going the wrong way. We took prayers & the pledge out of school, we have taken most forms of disciplines out (just kick them out, it's easier), parents want to be more of a friend instead of telling a child "NO". I'm sure that I will make some people mad after reading this & it's ok, yes we live in a free world & I have my rights to say how I feel just like they do.
So for today my prayers are for everyone out there having to deal with this tragic loss & believe me, we all have in one way or not. You might not have loss someone phyiscally but we all loss that safe feeling, knowing that it could have been you & your family just as easy.
So take a moment to let your loved ones know how you feel & never take a single day for granted. Tell them you love them & thank God for everything you have in your life.
