This morning a 20-year-old gunman murdered 27 people, including 20 children, in Sandy Hook Elementary School.
Keep the victims and their families in mind today as this unfortunate incident is, sadly, not the first.
Read more about the shooting here, and keep your eyes out for ways to help the families.
Also, in regards to school shootings, I think education is very important, and I like to do this through writing and reading as many of you know. Even though I personally believe we cannot logically understand the illogical (situations like this), I still think we can try and/or cope.
I read Todd Strasser’s, Give a Boy a Gun, many years ago, and I found myself deeply moved by the severity of school violence he exposed. I really suggest this reading and/or Rachel’s Tears, which depicts the life of Columbine victim, Rachel Scott.
Please educate yourself, share these novels, and prevent the pain of more suffering by understanding as much as we can about these tragic circumstances.
And, remember, help the families if you are able to this holiday season,
