Florida School Shooting

3 years ago

You have probably seen the news that a school shooting has occurred in Parkland, Florida. Seventeen are dead so far from a former and expelled student. I have just recently seen it, and I used to live right there. The father of one of my dearest friends and the man who caused me to enter the education field is a high school teacher there in the very place where the shooter assaulted. He could've been murdered. I have never been so closely effected by a mass shooting before, and I cannot describe this sickness inside me. I cannot imagine how it would be for those more directly effected.

My prayers are with those effected by this tragedy. God, help them find peace and hope.

I'm sorry that you have to go through such a horrible feeling. It's always quite depressing to hear about these kinds of things happening.

I have a 9 year old cousin & when sandy hook happened he was too young to know what happened really but the realization that a family member of mine could have been killed in an elementary school shooting makes me sad & angry. Just like the fact that I attended the dark knight rises premiere & at the same time we were enjoying the movie someone else was shooting up another threatre. I feel a lot does have to do with not just gun control but the mental illness in people
