Tragedy At Gables High

Just awful what transpired yesterday morning at Coral Gables High School. My prayers go out to the family of the victim and the perpetrator, as well as the students, parents and staff at the school. This is one of parents' worst nightmares come true, especially when it happens in a good school in a good area.

Could schools be doing a better job of protecting their students from these type of attacks? That's a highly debatable question. I think the answer is most definitely YES, but even if we bolster security measures, it's likely that isolated and random incidents like these could still happen. I'm glad that this last article accurately points out that schools are still safer than the community at large, although it only takes one or two isolated incidents to shape a perception and understandably worry parents.
