Deadly school shooting in Brazil leaves 11 children dead

The headline:  11 children, gunman killed in Brazil school shooting

The link:  http://www.cnn.com/2011/WORLD/americas/04/07/brazil.school.shooting/index.html?hpt=T2#

The summary:  A gunman opened fire on a Brazilian school that left 11 children dead and another 18 injured before he committed suicide upon being cornered by police.

The reaction:  I can’t begin to tell you how sad these stories make me.  Almost 30 young people either dead or injured and for what?  The murder-suicide leaves an easy out for the gunman since he won’t have to face the consequences (unless, of course, you count the judgement day) and leaves the families of these children in mourning and struggling to find meaning and solace.

Of course, this brings back memories of Columbine and every other school shooting that’s happened in the past but it certainly doesn’t make it any easier to understand.
