Sadly, I was confronted with another school shooting sent to me by someone. The good news is that no one is dead. 

The bad news is that these things are still occuring.

I think I have been to Wisconsin once or twice. It is a nice state and there are nice people there- and one wonders why someone would bring a gun to school and what their ultimate intentions were.

We all seem to be perplexed and frustrated nowadays with these occurrences. Frustrated because one wonders what goes on in the minds of these students, and what goes on in the homes, and how on earth did some 17 year old student get a gun.

One other sad thing is that these small events do not get the media coverage that large events do- thus leading us into a kind of false status- that these things are decreasing- when in fact they are not. I am sure there is someone out there keeping data on these minor school shootings, and of course the major school shootings. And there are probably other “events” out there of a violent nature that may be covered up or not covered by the press at all. Sad.

We can hope and pray that things improve in 2020. I hear this from many, many people.
