For the second time this month a teacher has stepped up to save lives.
We learn this morning that a third student has died from yesterday's high school shootings in Ohio. What a tragedy.
But it probably would have been worse if not for the fearless, selfless actions of a teacher/coach, Frank Hall, who chased the shooter out of the building. (When I heard this I thought, why would the shooter, who has the gun, run from the coach? But old habits die hard and the shooter probably could only think to run from the adult.)
Bless Coach Hall his courage and the caring he showed for his students.
We all know that many a teacher has motivated a life or encouraged a life in the classroom. That now we find them literally saving lives should not surprise any of us.
Interesting article on why the US has more school shootings.
I urge you to TALK to your older children. Ask them about what's happening at school. Ask them if it makes them feel safe to have fire drills and safety drills. Ask them if they worry about any child (either out of fear or concern).
