1 family 2 shootings

School shootings are now so common at least one family has had to endure it twice now.

The first time someone called Celia to say a gunman was in her child's school was 12 years ago.

She and her husband Jason were 50 miles from home. "We raced to get to her."

Chelsea was 14 years old and they were living in Bailey, a small mountain town in Colorado. The Columbine massacre, in which 13 people were killed, had happened in 1999 just under an hour away but the beautiful forest and mountains gave their home a secluded, quiet feeling.

The second time someone called Celia to say a gunman was in her child's school was two weeks ago.

Christian is 16 and is quiet with a calm manner. He's smart and Celia and Jason chose Marjory Stoneman Douglas, in Parkland, Florida, for its academic reputation.

Re: 1 family 2 shootings

I guess no one cares or has any solutions to stop these school shootings let alone all the other shootings that happen in your country.

Mmm, who is the only person on this forum that has offered a compromise / solution on guns and terminating heartbeats in unborn babies.  Not Canuck, he hasn't offered any compromise.
