Oh my God. More school violence.

A child has lost her life in a close-knit mountain community high school. A gunman took 6 children hostage, released 4, broke off negotiations, then shot one of the remaining female hostages when the police stormed the school.
Too horrible to imagine.
The worst thing that is supposed to happen at school is bullying.
What is going on in this World?
Hug your children extra today.

I know posting it three times was a glitch and now you've fixed it, but I thought it was a proper way of expressing horror at the event.

I don't even listen to the news these days.

I'll try to find a co-worker to hug.

My vw (could I make this up if I tried?) is damhg--as in damn hug?

Between women killing other women for babies and rampant violence, I am firmly convinced the world is going to hell in a handbasket.

Oh God, there was another one today at an Amish school. The angels must be weeping.

Yes, the poor little Amish girls. How did that sad, crazy man get so many guns? And yes, even one gun is too many in my book.
