Baww day.

Posted 19 October 2010 - 05:17 PM

remember Columbine? (I don't). But this guy who was a friend of the first girl who was killed came to our school today. Pretty sad stuff. Raised some questions too. Is someone around me dangerous? How the hell did they get those guns? What the hell was this her diaries?

If anything it should be a reminder to refuse to have bad days. There is nothing like living through a tragedy like that.

I remember all the awareness stuff we did back in school about bullying and cliques and etc. Mostly it was kumbaya. Waste of time. Granted all those programs were pre-columbine. I was in 8th grade when it happened.

Stuff like that only works if there is 100% buy in. Plus, imio, the majority of the problem with those who resort to school violence stems from their home life. Schools shouldn't be raising kids, parents need to step back up.

The approach is a little too personal for me. I never met her so I wouldn't want to see a bunch of pictures of her and read secrets divulged from her diary. Good Cause, not my cup of tea.
