Then there was the principal who was shot in fair proximity to us in Wisconsin.
We were in lockdown after a step-father killed his eight-year-old son and then disappeared. He was found two days later in a barn about 30 miles away.
Daughter is doing PT and faces an MRI on her knee (she's had two knee surgeries due to sports injuries) after breaking up a fight in her classroom and having some damage done to her knee.
I am still reeling from a friend whose husband hit daughter's boyfriend, pulled out his guns, went into the hospital for emergency protective custody as a danger to himself. Wife has a restraining order now and is filing for divorce.
The violence is getting out of hand and is frightening.
