I am so, so disturbed at the deaths of those elementary students and staff at Sandy Hook Elementary today. I feel so bad for the families who’ve lost their loved ones, for the children who witnessed the shooting, and for the teachers who saw their students under attack.
I’ve taught teenagers. I’ve also been a camp counselor with younger kids. If a crazed gunman came into my class and started shooting at my charges, I’d like to say I’d go ballistic to protect the kids. Doesn’t mean I’d succeed in saving any lives.
