In Chardon, Ohio, a gunman, possibly a student, opened fire inside a high school cafeteria, killing one student and wounding four others, officials said. A suspect was arrested at the scene. The shooting was reported around 7:30 a.m. at the Chardon High School, said Civil Deputy Erin Knife of the Geauga County Sheriff’s Office. Angela Kiska, of the Cleveland Clinic, told WJW-TV in Cleveland that two of the victims were transported to Hillcrest Hospital.
Students at the high school and middle school were already at school when the shooting happened, but the buses for the elementary school children were stopped. All classes were canceled and parents were advised to pick up their children in a safe manner. Parents of high school students were told to go to Maple Elementary School to pick up their children.
This is just one more reason to pull our kids out of public schools and home school them. Kids shouldn’t be exposed to these kinds of traumatic events so early in life. This is what happens when our government takes prayer, the ten commandments, and Bible reading out of schools! Kids just don’t know right from wrong any more. As John Adams, our second president, explained, “We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge, or gallantry, would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”
In another case I just read about, two eleven year old girls got in a fight over a boy, and one of them is dead now. They aren’t sure if the fight was related to the death yet, but since it was only hours later, it likely was. What I want to know is where were the teachers while this fight was going on? Why was it allowed to continue? A little more supervision may have saved these students lives.
