An Exploding Epidemic

When I started this blog it was not my intention to write about school shootings on a near-constant basis. Yet again that is the topic of the day. Pennsylvania State Police report a number of people dead after someone commandeered a one-room Amish school in Nickel Mines. We’ll take a closer look at this story once more details emerge.

Four school shootings have dominated headlines on this continent in the past two-and-a-half weeks. This is the first time ever we’ve had so many school shootings in the United States, three to be exact, in less than one week. It is heartwrenching. Another day, another shooting. A new wave of school violence is upon us.
