how sad

This is shocking!!! It's an article off reuters of all the young people killed by gun or stabbing this year. It scares me cos some of the kids I've worked with are daft enough to end up either holding or at the end of a gun and not because they are horrible, evil human beings but just cos thats where they ended up and can't really remember how.
