It Could Never Happen To Me

It could never happen to me,
Yet I put on my seat belt anyway.

It could never happen to me,
But I teach my kids not to talk to strangers.

It could never happen to me,
yet I lock my car doors anyway.

It could never happen to me,
but I look both ways before I cross the street.

It could never happen to me,
But I teach my children not to take candy from people unless they have Mommy and Daddy’s permission.

It could never happen to me,
But I keep emergency numbers next to my telephone.

It could never happen to me,
Yet I keep a first aid kit in my car trunk.

It could never happen to me,
But I keep matches, lighters and candles away from my children.

It could never happen to me,
But I keep the doors to my house locked at all times.

It could never happen to me,
Yet I never leave food cooking unattended

It could never happen to me,
Yet I never leave a space heater on when I go to sleep.

It could never happen to me,
But I never give out my social security number over the Internet.

It could never happen to me,
Yet here I am behind an overturned table with no means to protect myself…

I should have learned from Virginia Tech,

But I never thought it could happen to me.

Virgina Tech- College Columbine

I am grieved to hear of the events that happened yesterday at Virginia Tech. I had my TV on most of the day listening to Fox News. When I first heard about the news, the death count was 21. Now it is at 33 including the demented young man who decided to go on this rampage. This is now the deadliest shooting in American history.

I could talk about why the campus wasn’t closed after the first shooting. I could talk about how a year prior to the shooting the State of Virginia killed bill allowing handguns on campuses. I could talk about those things, but I will not. There are plenty of other blogs and news sites who can articulate on those ideas better than I can. I don’t quite know what to say other than our family is praying for those whose lives are forever change by this attack.
