I just received an automatic call from DD's middle school telling me that a child threatened to bring a gun to school on Friday and shoot everyone because the world is going to end anyway.

I swear, we're raising a bunch of disturbed and entitled brats! Giving participant trophies, not keeping score, giving everyone a place on the team, abolishing F's and allowing kids to do work over and over. Then, when the REAL world doesn't give them their way, they snap and take it out on everyone else.

It's going to take a lot more than tougher gun laws to fix what's going on. I don't have all the answers, but I know there is more than one step to fixing this. I'm tired of hearing about all these shootings, innocent lives lost because someone didn't get enough attention or the team position they wanted or a girlfriend.

GAH! I'M VENTING I'M SCARED I'M SADDENED. Just needed to let it out!!!

 Well this generation is not raising future adults it's just breeding animals, so that is what we have to treat them like, animals!  Assume any one of them can snap and, "turn".

I have already made the decision to keep my daughters home from school Friday.  I am to afraid of some sicko going in because of this very thought.

We should be realistic, but to live in constant fear is just BS! Ugh
