I was wondering if anyone was going to post on this but there was a school shooting in Chardon, Ohio today. Chardon is not too far from me and I have passed by that high school a few times on the freeways.
I am keeping the victims in my thoughts tonight and still feeling shocked from it. I also have friends I worked with that went to Chardon High School and I can only imagine what they're going through. I only wonder how I'd react if it were my old high school- as some of my friends now teach at our ala mater.
This is kind of sad for me as a former victim of bullying and teasing because I NEVER thought of using a gun against my tormenters and ending their lives. NEVER.
School shootings are never easy to watch on the news or see. As someone who was bullied, I'd never act on wanting to kill someone- but I do understand it in a way. For me, I just wanted to get out of the school and away from it.
This just is a shock for me... really is.
