Prayers For Chardon High School Community

Again, today, a student strikes out with gun violence at school. My heart breaks for the parents who sent their child to school today and now their child will not be coming home. My heart breaks for the parents who sent their children to school and now their children are severely injured in the hospital. My heart breaks for the children who went to school today and lost their innocence. Why does this continue to happen and when will it ever end. My office is in a high school building. I look at those kids and they are so young, yet so full of promise. What makes a kid turn so far off track that they commit this kind of heinous act? I don't understand. I don't think I want to understand. Let's all hug our kids tonight and tell them that we love them. My two are away at college....but you can bet I am going to call them and let them know how very much I love them. So quickly things can change. My prayers to the students, their families and the Chardon community. God bless you all!


  1. That is so sad and awful! Every time I drop something off at one my boys schools, go to a play or a meeting I think about how safe it seems. Even though so many terrible acts of violence occur.

    1. Yes, so incredilby tragic! Now we learn that yet another victim has died. God bless them!
