My heart is heavy as I am sure most people’s are. That horrific monster that killed those precious babies and amazing teachers is weighing on my heart. I am a teacher, I am a mother, I am a human and I fully support amendment 2. But how can we regulate gun laws better so that lunatics cannot access these? How can we keep our schools safer. I kept thinking yesterday that those babies had no idea what to do, no lockdown notice would have helped, nothing. Do we need to start teaching kids what to do in shooting drills? Do teachers need to be allowed to conceal and carry? Would there be less of these school shootings if we (teachers/schools) were heavily armed? People don’t tend to walk onto military bases or shooting ranges and do mass murders. They go after “safe”, unarmed places where they are the only ones in power.
In my classroom I make sure to create a safe and caring environment and it kills me to know that one dumbass, crazy on a power trip can take the innocence and safety away from my kids and my classroom.
Today was supposed to be my top 5 laughs and there were some good ones, but I don’t feel like laughing. I feel like crying, and hugging my child and my cousins and friends kids.
Oh and why do these crazy men almost all tend to be white males in America? We don’t tend to hear about these in Canada or the UK? What is America doing so wrong? I wish I had answers, but today I only have questions. I will continue to pray.
