Connecticut School ShootingDecember 15, 2012
Today was the first time I had shed a tear or two in a long, long time. The results of today’s mass shooting at an elementary school was the cause of those tears. My emotions are of sorrow and anger at the same time.
The sorrow comes from that of not just only innocent lives, but children less than ten years of age. How can someone take the lives of several kids? What did the kids do to warrant such an awful act? My heart and prayers go out to the victims and their families of the shooting.
The anger side is cause by the fact that too many of these shootings are happening in recent time and they are more and more frequent it seems. After today’s event, something has to give. I’m not quite sure what that something should be, but the shootings need to stop or at least show some effort in trying to discourage such acts in the future.
Well, I hope the deaths in today’s shooting lead to a start of fighting back against such horrible act of violence. Increasing security in ALL schools would be a decent start. Perhaps, making ammunition more difficult to get would be another solution. Whatever the solution, I just simply hope the nation see something done.
