another tid bit of news

Have you heard about those kids that wanted pull off another killing rampage at Cascade school here in Oregon...The plan was to kill the first adults they came across when they walked into to school...I just found out that it would have been my sister-in-law...she's a bit shaken!! Then my niece...has taught at that school and had one of the boys in her class. At least the authorities were able to stop it! This school is only about a half an hour from where I live.

What a terrible thing it would have been if this had been pulled off. Fortunately they talked about it online and someone was wise enough to take it seriously. And the authorities didn't assume it was a joke! The tragedy would have been impossible to imagine. So thankful it was stopped. ~Adrienne~

I'm so glad your sister-in-law is okay.

You are having a time of it this week my friend! I'm so glad all worked out ok with the school. I'm not sure maybe it's the pollen that sets people off? It just doesn't make sense.

Hugs and Prayers, Lisa

Living in the UK I was not aware of this but thank goodness it was stopped in time. It makes me go cold when I read all that is happening in the world today, especially where our schools are concerned. What a week you are having my friend.

My goodness.
this is our nice state of Oregon you are talking about. Starting to sound like the big city. Things are really getting out of hand any move.

Glad all were safe, and it was topped before it happened.
