Stunned into Writer’s Block

I don’t even know what to say about the latest school shooting. A one room school house in the heart of Amish country. Little girls shot execution style – its horrific. I can’t help thinking that the shooter went there because he was going to shoot somebody and the security would be less tight in this nonviolent, peaceful community.

Even taking mental illness into account, I don’t believe these shooters decide to do their deed on a whim. Where are the friends and family of these guys? Why aren’t they paying attention and being proactive? I’ve lived with Pap for 25 years. I know when he’s on a rant about something, even if he isn’t talking about it. I know who’s wronged him in the past and how he feels about it now. This shooter says he was getting revenge for something that happened 20 years ago. He NEVER talked about this evil deed to anyone?

It’s a bad day for good news. Did you hear about the Texas teacher who was fired because her students saw nude statues in a MUSEUM? Jeesh. This country is all out of whack today.

Welcome to My Neighborhood!

Shortly after I learned to use a spoon, I learned to use a pencil. Crippled by shyness as a child, I found that the things I couldn't say out loud, I could say with a pen, and then a typewriter. The shyness was overcome with education and age...but the need to write has never left me.
