I can’t even express the thoughts that went through my head as I heard about this. I have friends who teach there, and the siblings of some of my friends are still in school there. Wow…this REALLY hits home for me.

  1. I hope all is well with you and yours.

  2. yep, dude looked crazy in that cnn picture — lucky he didn’t do more damage.

  3. that was insane…

  4. I’m glad no one was seriously hurt. On the news, he was yelling, “Remember Columbine!!,” as he was being put into the police car.
