    So sad, a day where children couldn't go to church because of unmentionable acts, but now school is a place to fear as well. what is this world coming to? At what point does someone say "i'd rather shoot up a classroom full of children rather that a jailhouse full of rapists and murderers." Shootings aren't right in either case but still….children??

    My heart goes out to the families of this tragedy. I could not imagine having this happen at my sons school!!! What is wrong with the world today??

    Such a senseless act!! I don't understand how or why someone could be so heartless. If you are that unhappy in your life it is one thing to take your own life but what right does anyone have to take someone else's? And whatever happened to loving thy neighbor?

    Of course my heart aches for everyone who lost someone in this tragedy. I absolutely would like to send a word of appreciation to those who are on the scene of this horrible, horrible event. I cannot imagine having the strength to deal with all this. The police, social workers, etc. are truly remarkable people in being able to help those folks during their unimaginable nightmare.

    There should be a law made and enforced in MI and the rest of the USA for high security of some sort in all schools. So sad our children are no longer safe in school. The system for guest check ins is obviously failing. Things need to change quickly!!

    There needs to be Security Metal Detectors and Security Guards in every School across America and I believe a lot of people would agree with me on this and Obama needs to put this into action so something like this doesn't happen again. People may feel a little freaked out about it and they may not but it would be more safer and it will save a lot of lives. Our Government spends Trillions of dollars on things that do not matter they should be spending it to make the Schools a lot more safer for the children and that is what should matter most.

    I agree not enough security. I have walked in school when no one was even in the office.cameras don’t help. We need to stop thinking it can’t happen to us. Or where we live.its past time lets prepare for the worst! Lets get to it schools! I will be thinking of your families tonight. So sorry, I can’t help .

    The nation has dis-allowed prayer and the pledge of allegiance from the schools. Has this dis-allowed God's hand of protection from our children?
