Can I take a minute, as a parent of 2 children currently attending this school, to vent and be INCREDIBLY opinionated??? The email regarding this situation, that was sent out to all Kirn parents today, left me with the worst feeling I have ever had in my life. I have never felt so much anger, fear, and helplessness in my life , as I did when reading those first few lines. Luckily for us Kirn parents, today didn't amount to an incident like we've all seen on the news, far too many times. But what it has shown us, is that this hate is spreading, and no school or child is ever completely safe from it's effects.
Here's the thing, I don't care about your political standing as far as guns are concerned, I care about people, I care about children. We should not be afraid to send our children to school! But we are. Our children should not be afraid to go to school! But they are. And while both political parties (not just the politicians, regular people who are overly opinionated on social media as well) battle it out over gun control , nothing is really happening, aside from you all spewing hate.... the same hate that has gotten us into this situation in the first place! Maybe we should entertain some stricter policies, maybe the NRA has a few valid points.... OR MAYBE we should lay down our political differences, end the hate, and actually start caring about people again! Maybe the answer isn't on either side. Maybe the answer is where we come together and treat eachother like human beings, and remember that these are children's lives we're talking about! Maybe, just maybe, if we stopped living in hate, our children would learn something other than hate.
