If our precious children are not safe in our schools, how can we ever kiss them goodbye and wave to them getting on the bus again? How can we drop them off at school and drive away knowing that it might be the last time? Those are the things parents (myself included) are thinking after Friday’s tragedy.
Others are thinking we must have stricter gun laws. I understand that people want action NOW! Enough is enough…but the reality of it (sadly) is guns don’t kill people, people kill people. If every gun in the nation were removed, does anyone think murder would stop? Murder has been the violent answer to man’s selfishness since the beginning…be it by clubbing, hanging, strangling, knives, stoning, bombs, chemicals, guns and even airplanes as we all learned on September 11th. Murder is murder…the weapon doesn’t really matter when the end result is the same.
