It's depressing and frightening.
I'm paranoid to walk down the street after sundown because you hear about robberies, murders, and pedophiles that live oh, what? 30 minutes away?
My parents always tell me the world is a scary place, but I don't think they meant it would be this bad. People are getting out of control and there's not much we can do. When I heard about it, my parents were crying when they told me. I was shocked and I can only imagine the pain the parents of those children feel.
They were kids. Just kids. The oldest was, what, 6? And they were human! They had hopes and dreams, families, and loved ones. i heard about one kid, Noah i think was his name, who loved tacos. I don't know if I'll ever be able to eat tacos again without crying. We need gun control. Maybe you disagree with me, but look at this country. Look at it. Look at all the innocent people who have been killed, and at all the innocent people in your life who could be killed. We need to do something, now.
I can't even describe how I feel. Rest in peace. I cried so hard.
I wish that I could have done something. It makes me think why the man shot all those innocent kids. Those kids could have been a Great person someday. Yet that man ended their lives to soon. I cried when I heard what happened. Rest in peace, the innocent.
I had wanted to say that this is unbelieveable. But you have to believe that this is real because it just happened. I just... I really can't explain it. I mean, kindergartners? Really? That's like going in a hospital and killing 20 newborns... It's sickening. Now I'm seriously afraid. I'm afraid to go in the movies, I'm afraid to walk on the street, to go inside a mall, and now I don't even think I can go to school anymore without someone trying to take another's life.
I was only four when the Columbine shooting took place, and six when 9/11 and the anthrax scare happened. Now that I'm older, I understand what's happening. I realize that no one is safe, and it is just a matter of being in the wrong place at the wrong time.
I think that nothing is safe anymore. I heard President Obama give a speech, and it made me realize something.
After 9/11, people were afraid to go on planes and in tall buildings. After the Aurora massacre, people were afraid to go into movie theaters. After the Oregon mall shooting, and various others, people were afraid of malls, too. Now, people can't go anywhere, not even to kindergarten class, without being afraid that someone could come in and shoot them.
It is terrifying.
Admin: Knowing that I live about 40 minutes away from Connecticut, my heart was broken. 3 of the children I babysit actually attend that school. They were actually lucky, since they didn't start school until noon. I feel so sorry about those 20 students and 6 teachers that were murdered. I hope God is taking great care of them, and their families will survive this, knowing that pieces of their lives are gone forever.
God bless them.
