    This is so darn sad and just horrible what happened as all murders are. This is NOT the same country I grew up in as a child, America is dying fast. Now days people are conditioned to live with this violence that we have in this country, our schools are not even safe anymore, our very way of life is threatened by violence and all the hate that is forced on us each day......politicians no longer care for this country, only thing anyone wants is money.....greed is the norm anymore........and it is only going to get worse as time goes by. I feel for the children of America for they are learning not the very values that made this country great at one time but the violent way of life.
