Great Bend, Kan.- School shootings are happening at a rate of one every two weeks in the United States. Coming upon the first anniversary of the Newtown Connecticut school shooting, which claimed the lives of 26 individuals and left far more with trauma that will last a lifetime, a person can't help but wonder, what is wrong with our society.
Why would a person do this? How could a person give such little value to human life? Perhaps the issue is not that they don't know the value of human life, maybe it is quite the opposite. These shooters know the destruction they are causing. They want others to feel the pain and grief they feel. They know how valuable a persons life is when they choose to take it.
