Hug Them Twice Today

By {screen_name}
Son, you better hurry up or you’ll be late for school. OK mom. I just need to put some stuff in my backpack. Oh right! Don’t forget the Glock. And make sure you’ve got extra ammo for the Ruger. There are a lot of sick bastards out there lately shooting kids at school. Yeah, but mom, I’ve heard you can’t really blame them. They had bad childhoods. You know, like they were fat and got picked on. Some of them even got rejected by girls. A couple had parents who ignored them. That’s true son. They’re not to blame. It’s not their fault. Why, even al-Zaraqawi got off easy because his dad was mean to him. Well, don’t worry mom. We had anti-bully training at school so it won’t happen here. But if anyone breaks into my school, I’ll shoot them first. That’s a good idea son. Do it to them before they do it you. OK mom. The bus is here. Have a good day at school, honey. Remember to come home alive and please don’t get executed. That conversation took place in a nightmare of mine last night. It could have just as easily been a real conversation. It doesn’t matter. How can you possibly make sense or try to explain away why anybody, regardless of their background, could walk into a school or university and assassinate children and young adults?! Remember and pray for these victims and their families this week. May they rest in peace and God’s love.
