This story is absolutely tragic. All incidents like this are, but these are little kids. Innocent to the world. Sad. Prayers for all.
Sadly this is a reflection on the society we live in today. Citizens have been armed since the since the constitution was put on paper and made the law of the land. This type of violence could have happened 60 years ago but didn't because our moral fiber wasn't the same as today. Violent movies, video games and the lack of any kid of moral conscience plays a major factor in the world as we know it today.
