UNFORTUNATELY, for the three boys shot and killed, many factors came into play in this tragedy. The blame game is easy after the fact; however, at the end of the day, this tragedy has affected so many. Children lost their lives; parents lost their children; friends lost friends. The ones who survived, as well as the brothers who lived at the home, will forever be scarred and the shooter will spend the rest of his life in jail.
I believe that we as parents, as a community, need to step up our parenting game and change the cycle of poverty, hate, abuse, drug addiction, bad parenting and, most importantly, not placing enough importance on having an education.
