Another random, useless shooting, this time at Virginia Tech

If ever there was a reason to rant and rave, it's today's shooting at Virgina Tech. At last report 30 people were killed and 21 people are injured. Imagine as a parent sending an offspring to a school of higher learning so that she/he can be a contributing member of society, saying goodbye in the morning, forever. Unfortunately, these horrific mass killings in school settings are becoming all too frequent. Just last year we experienced a similar situation although not to such a degree, with a young and obviously very disturbed young male entering a local university and opening fire at random. He killed a young female and injured others that happened to be in his range of fire, then did away with himself before anybody could find out any information as to his reason for committing murder. In the end, does it really make any difference, anyway? The result is the taking of lives of innocent persons.

I don't know...I... just... don't... know. It's just not right or normal to outlive your children. My heart is heavy today. Why...why...why...?
