    My thoughts and prayers go out to the friends and families of the ones who lost their lives on February 14th 2018. In the Douglas high school shooting massacre

    Same. Prayers for all involved.

    There are a couple stories trending on Facebook as we speak. One is that a grandmother probably prevented another school shooting after she found her grandson's journal, which had detailed plans for one. And the other story is that another teen had threatened "Round 2" in South Carolina and has been arrested.

    What on earth goes through these kids' heads, and how do the parents have no idea of what's brewing in the minds and hearts of their children?!

    It's only a matter of time before another one of these happens. Also it surpassed Columbine which I can't believe.

    That, and I suppose it's also not helped in a generation where young people stare at phones all day and give one word answers, like "fine," when asked how their day was. I say that as someone guilty of both things, to a degree. I guess a lot can go on under the surface, and we tell ourselves everything will be fine, because nothing has happened yet.... And then, people reach a breaking point and their silence is broken in dramatic ways.

    It's a disgrace that these schools are targeted. Prayers go out to the families.
