I got called into work early today. My boss called about an hour before I was scheduled and asked if I could come in as soon as possible. When I asked why, she told me that there had been a shooting in Red Lake and the person I would be working for knew some people there. I told her I'd be there in fifteen minutes. Then I immediately got on the computer and looked up the story on Google. Hadn't even heard about it 'til then. It's a sad, sad situation. Red Lake isn't even very far from here; maybe an hour? Heck, apparently a bunch of the wounded students were taken to the hospital in town. Makes me glad I'm not in high school any more; the whole state's going to be on edge now.
On a side note, I've run into one article calling the shooter a Goth because he listened to Marilyn Manson. I only mention it because I know better. If I remember correctly, the Columbine shooting started a bit of a "witch hunt" on goths; hope nothing similar happens here.
I'm not much of a religious person, but I think it's time to go say my prayers and go to sleep.
