Fear of Gun Violence at School

spilling bloodCompulsory education is law in every state in America. The intention was and is, to give our children the best chance to have a full and happy life. On December 13, 2013, Claire Davis went to school. She was in the hallway of The Arapahoe High School at 12:33 and she was shot. She died on December 21, 2013 from her injuries.

Education is thought to be the key to success and happiness and school was to be a sanctuary for learning. Learning is about the future. Learning is to take one beyond. Claire went to school to learn but she was shot in her school. Claire’s future was wiped out by a mentally imbalanced person with a gun.

America is left with a lesson to be learned from the killing of Claire. There was the same lesson to be learned from  the Sandy Hook Elementary School killings on December. 14, 2012. The lesson is not an abstract concept. It is that guns, in the hands of the mentally imbalanced, are killing our youth. Guns in the hands of the mentally imbalanced are making our schools places where our young are fearful of violence. It is compulsory that America learns this lesson.
