I have two small girls (8 and 4) and kissed and hugged them just a wee bit tighter tonight.


Yeah, it sure makes you appreciate all that you have. Stories like this, although tragic, do help to put things into perspective for the rest of the world.

Wow, it's bad enough when you hear about these things on the news but I can only imagine what it's like when it happens at your own school. Absolutely terrible.

Prayers and thoughts are going out to all involved. Very sad and with 2 young ones at home scares me more and more everyday knowing they could be caught in the middle of something like this once they reach school age

Sad to hear - one of the reasons I got out of the big city before my 2 boys started high school - just too many problems with gangs and violence and related problems at big city shcools.

I wouldn't be so sure about being safer

NPR wrote:School Shootings in Rural Settings
by Howard Berkes

Morning Edition, October 4, 2006 · Violent crime is far less common in rural areas than in cities. Rural people are four times less likely to be victims of violent crime. Yet all three school shootings in the past week occurred in rural places.
