Valentine's Day Massacre

Today is St. Valentine’s Day, a day of celebrating love and friendship. But for the people who lost loved ones today at Northern Illinois University, it will forever be a black day full of horror and death.

My heart goes out to the people hurt and traumatized by today’s events, and to those grieving the loss of loved ones who will never see another February 14th.

Education should not come at such a high price and classes should not be attended with thoughts of fear and death. Young people should be safe in the schools of this country whether it be an Amish one-room school house, an inner city middle school, a suburban high school, or a major university.

Do you feel as helpless and outraged as I do today?

Helpless, yes. Sad & confused, too. So many guns.

It concerns me about the world my children and E&J are growing up in.
