The latest news of the school shooting is terrifying. Schools are so vulnerable. One of my former students is currently in jail awaiting trial for owning an illegal stockpile of guns and ammunition. He played violent video games, made violent doodlings and implied to others that he wanted to be involved with a mass school shooting.
As a student he seemed to hate everyone. He seemed so angry. I assumed it was a cultural misunderstanding and tried to stay positive. I’m never sure whether to mention the fact that he was from Ethiopia.

    I think it’s interesting that no one’s mentioned it on either of the listservs I’m on. It’s like people’s hearts and minds won’t address it there, because they talked about Virginia Tech so exhaustively.
