Sad , and so near Christmas
Yes...it is hard to keep the faith when the devil seems to triumph constantly with so much sorrow being dealt to people in so many ways...http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/12/ ... 3F20121214
The New York Times reported that the gunman walked into a classroom where his mother was a teacher, shot his mother and then 20 students, most in the same classroom, b e fore shooting five other adults and killing himself. One other person was shot at the school and survived, the Times said
Now why would the shooter want to kill his mother to begin with?
The 'psychos' in our society abound at every corner of the world.
What is hard to understand is the poor security at schools...that allows entrance so easily...and no-one became suspect at what the shooter was carrying, concealing an AR-15?
As an investigator for Insurance companies, I saw the security measures taken by offices_ after several killings of claims personnel by disgruntled claimants entering wide open spaces and firing at will.
The answer was to modify office entrances so that if you wanted to go into the building to 'see' someone for any reason...you first had to open the entrance door that led into a small lobby where the receptionist was fortified behind a bullet proof glass pane.
Once your visit was verified with the person inside, you were then allowed to enter an 'ante-room' with a locked fortified door accessing the people inside at their desks or private offices.
The person you were there to see would then open and then quickly shut the fortified door and then sat with you at a table to conduct business...even if you were a family member.
