February 15, 2008 - Heather Ziegler
I don't care if I ever learn the name of the coward who walked into that college classroom in Illinois yesterday and destroyed the lives of so many people - dead and alive. As of this moment, five families are facing the torture of their lives as their promising, young sons and daughters are dead at the hands of a vicious monster who opened fire on unarmed students attending class. I'm sick of these killers. There is no way to prevent this from happening when it comes down to it. But we don't have to glorify the situation. Don't tell me how the shooter was bullied or his girlfriend broke up with him or he was abused as a child. I don't want to hear it. Let me hear about the innocent victims lost and the positives in those lives. Let me share a prayer and cry with their family members. And let's feel sorry for the parents of the shooter. They have lost too and will continue to pay until their own deaths. Life is so unfair. These kinds of things make us question our faith and our destiny. I don't know the answers to stopping these kinds of things. Parents, call your kids in college today. Kids, call your parents. We need each other more than ever.
