Hot Topic Thursday: Can We Move Forward?

As we find out exactly how premeditated the shootings at Virginia Tech were, it becomes painfully obvious that the teasing and harassment pushed the gunman over the edge. I mean, there’s no justification to taking someone’s life but I feel like this could have been prevented.

Everyone reading this blog right now can recall a time when they’ve felt violated, insulted or teased because something about them is different. But luckily, we were probably able to brush it off. When it’s a constant source of pain, can someone really brush it off?

In the aftermath of this horrible violent act, we can’t let the innocent students’ lives be lost in vain. Cherish your friends and family, keep an open mind about the differences you see in others and pay attention when someone is silently screaming for help.
