(215) I Have 5 Questions

Yesterday it was reported that a girl who goes to my school was shot three times in her neighborhood. She was sitting with family and friends and someone just walked up and started shooting. She was the only one hit.

She is 12-years-old.

Fortunately, she is doing well and is expected to recover. It does leave some questions:

1. How many children need to get shot before we get serious about the amount of violence in this country?

2. How does a child ever feel safe again after witnessing something like that?

3. Why do we continue to glorify violence?

4. Why do I feel numb?

5. Who’s next?
