It is time adults started to educate themselves on the issue of school and youth related violence. Until more people understand the warning signs, the violence will continue to grow. We must take steps to prevent the tragedies, not just turn our heads until they happen and then demand more of our governments to take action after lives are lost.
The NRA may try to convince us that armed guards at schools are a required measure but there have been attacks at schools that were staffed with armed guards. But this also takes it to the level of reaction, not pro-active prevention. It is time to take responsibility for our lack of action and learn about the issue instead of hiding our collective head in the sand.
