It was a horrible moment in US history and I am angry about how anyone can be raised not to have any empathy towards others. I am talking about the insane killer who murdered innocent children in Connecticut today. It demonstrated a lack of better gun control and a strong system of mental health in this country. Additionally, as I stride to do in this blog, is to point out heroism in what happened. Unfortunately, there really was very little! I liked that some of the teachers did a good job in controlling their class while the event was ongoing. I understand them because I was a substitute teacher for many years and I remember the many practice drills. Also, I meet many incredible teachers that work wonders for their students. It is sad to see these under rated individuals targeted by a deranged individual. I have to ask why? This event just makes me very emotional and if I was not working as a hero for my wife, Kat, I would imagine taking a time machine to the moment of this and defending both these teachers and the students. Worst yet the principal’s last tweet was that of asking everyone to attend a Christmas concert. Well, now none of the victims can have a good time, especially if they are no longer in time! (as we know it)- not alive! Let this be a wake up call to take care of individuals more carefully in this country so that we all can enjoy our lives in this world. Be Good!
