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.
