When I was young nobody ever thought that a person with guns would come into our classrooms and start shooting. Even when my children were young, nobody ever thought that as well. What has become of our society where schools need to be locked down to protect the children?
Our Hearts are Broken
Our prayers go out to all the families that have lost their dear innocent children and to the families of the other victims in the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newtown, CT on Friday morning.
When will we learn that guns kill!!! Get the guns off the streets. We hear “guns don’t kill, people kill” Well, if this very disturbed young man did not have access to his mother’s weapons, and came into this school whirling a knife, I think the end result would be quite different.
My little secret: Hug your child today and every day. Let them know how they are loved and most of all listen to what they say. Children have lots to talk about. If you give them the chance you will see they make a great deal of sense.
