    You know it's a pretty sad day when you have to fear for your child's life when you send them off to school.

    getting very warm in here...we don't have A/C in our gym, so this time of year in lovely central TX leads to some warm days. "it's not the heat...it's the humidity" (actually it's both!)
    don't want to hijack this thing...sorry.
     
  9. I was in high school in littleton colorado when that school shooting happend at columbine in littleton. Very scary. If you think it can't happen in your community trust me, it can.

    I really blame the parents of any school shooting. How can you not know your kid has a gun?

    They will probably blame the shooting on system of a down instead of bad parents.

    Not just kids.

    Some of us have parents who teach middle school.

    :(
     
  12. Ive been in bomb threat situations before in Middle school, My friend and some other kid found a box in the bathroom that said "Good day, Have a nice life" or something like that and they reported it to the teacher. All the students in the school were put on school buses and driven to the closest high school. The bomb squad came and there really was a crude home made bomb in the boxes, but wouldnt have gone off due to bad wiring or something like that. Scary stuff.

    how does a middle school kid get his hands on 3 handguns?

    or i guess the real question should be: how does a middle school kid get his hands on 1 handgun...
