Today Deedee brought home a notice from her school. Long story made short a boy brought a gun to school on Tuesday. Some kids saw it. One kid later told his mother who in turn contacted a teacher and up the chain it went. The boy was questioned by the police and admitted to stealing his father’s gun and bringing it to the school. The boy is now in jail.
I feel a million and one ways about this. A gun so close to my DeeDee. A gun in her school, passing her in the halls crammed inside a backpack. A gun that could have gone off.
It’s also the gun that didn’t go off. It’s the gun that wasn’t pointed at anybody. It’s the gun that hasn’t claimed a victim.
I’m very fortunate that some brave child stepped up and did the right thing. Some where out in my small town, a teenager is a hero. Thank you.
