Up-date on Marshall County Ky School Shooting

Ever since we heard about the shooting at the Marshall County High School in Kentucky, we haven’t done anything except to try to find out more information. Finally, the Law Enforcement Agencies and the Governor gave a press conference about 20 minutes ago. The shooting was much worse than what the local News station was releasing or known. There were two 15 year old students killed, one was a girl who passed at the scene. The other was a 15 year old boy who passed away at the hospital. The shooter wounded 14 others, who are now being treated for gunshot wounds. Two of those have been air-lifted out. There are 5 others being treated for non-gunshot wounds. The shooter is in custody and is going to be charged with murder and attempted murder. I believe if an animal can kill young teen-agers with no regard for their life, then he should be charged as an adult and face the death penalty.

 

You now know why we are not on the internet today. This is a very horrible and horrific day for everyone in this area. It is especially hard on those who lived through the Heath High School shooting twenty years ago. Most of the ladies here lived through that shooting. It brought back some very painful memories. You never imagine such a tragedy happening but to happen twice to the same community is unbearable and unthinkable.

 

Lady A asked you earlier to pray for us all. I repeat her request, pray for Western Kentucky at this darkest of darkest times. Remember us in your prayers today. Remember those two young people who needless lost their lives today. Remember those wounded and pray they not only make a quick recovery but with time their emotional scars heal. Pray for the families, the friends and all who suffer this day.

Today Is Going to Be a Difficult Day, We Just Received News That There Has Been A School Shooting At One of Our Local High Schools.

Good morning, my precious family. We received news a few minutes ago that there had been a local school shooting. It is a school that is not to far from here, it is in Marshall County. The shooting took place at the High School there, we have no details. There is suppose to be a news crew on the way there now. Not knowing is the worse thing in your life. I have grandchildren that go to that school district except they are in Elementary School, Thank the Goddess.

 

The Governor just tweeted that the shooter is in custody, one fatality and seven injured. Helicopters have been seen air-lifting individuals and there are numerous ambulances there. No official numbers yet but it doesn’t sound good. Those poor, poor parents, my heart truly breaks for them. Sending their children off to school and then something like this happens. What has happened to our world? What? It is unreal the total disregard for human life. Kids killing kids.

 

The first school shooting in the States occurred down the road from us. Heath High School, remember it. I do, my kids were in high school at the time. The news broke with just “a shooting at a local high school.” The first thing I started doing was putting my clothes on and trying to get out of the door as quick as possible with tears running down my face. Before I could get out the door, the news came back on and told us it was Heath High School where the shooting had occurred. Michael Carneal walked into the main lobby, took out several guns and shot up a morning prayer group. He killed three, wounded I don’t know how many. I do know one of them recovered but she is in a wheelchair for the rest of her life. Her aunt and I were good friends at the time. The neighbor across the road had just transferred her children to the county high school because the one in town was too rough. The one in town, that my kids went too, got smart. They had armored guards, metals detectors, a lock-down system for visitors to the school, everything you could imagine but yet everyone thought it was a horrible school. Heath was suppose to be the finest High School in the area at the time.

 

Marshall County is considered one of the finest high schools in the area. The shooting brought back a lot of bad memories for me. The minute I heard it, I couldn’t tell the others without crying. It absolutely breaks my heart to think of someone killing our children, especially another child. What has went so wrong? I know I always look for a reason or someone to blame. Could it be the parents fault? The Carneal boy’s family was up-standing members in the community. His daddy was a lawyer. The shooter this morning, we know nothing about yet. But I wonder if something just snaps in a person’s mind to make them want to kill another person. I don’t understand it. I don’t want to understand the mind of a killer. To me, taking a life is the worse possible thing that could ever happen. Maybe the kids don’t understand, killing someone is final. People blame the video games, do the kids think the people they shoot are going to get up and walk away like they do in the games.

 

I prayed to the Goddess yesterday for help in understanding some of my confusion. I pray to the Goddess now for the soul that was lost this morning and those that were injured. I have no compassion or empathy for the individual who shot them.

 

I would ask one thing of you, my dear brothers & sisters, please pray for all of us in Western Kentucky this morning. Remember those who were injured, remember the one who lost their life and most of all remember their parents. What a horror it is for a parent to have to bury their child. No parent should ever have to go through that. Please, dear family, pray for all of us this morning.

 

I love you,

Lady of the Abyss

 

For all of you with children, hug them long and hard and tell them you love them dearly. It is a sad state of affairs to say but these day you never know.
