A Nightmare in Oregon

Sometimes I guess we all wonder – when does the violence, horror and death end???

We just had a mass killing in a college town not far from Portland – Medford, Oregon. Ten students killed and the killer was shot as well.

Today I only want to ask all of you to hold good thoughts for the parents who are suffering such a great loss.

Thank you.

This terrible tragedy is affecting so many people. It's incredibly sad that this keeps happening over and over and over!

Indeed will do Sylvia; the news came here last evening and it beggars belief that there are voices calling for increased arms use... I pray for the disease in society which thinks weapons cure ills...... YAM xx

You and your fellow citizens have all the sympathy I can muster. Guns have never solved any problems.

We are averaging 1 mass killing a day in the U.S. at the present time. Did you see Jeb Bush's response to this horrific event? "Stuff happens," he said.

Thoughts and prayers are not enough, Obama said. I have to agree with him.

These things are far too common. I had a good friend killed in a mass shooting back in the '90s. I'm very pessimistic for our future.

again, a 'lone wolf' - one of our own.

I don't know what it is going to take to stop this craziness. It makes me sick. I just wish people would come together on the issue and try to find a solution instead of arguing about what is causing it.

Why??? It is so hard to imagne why this keeps happening. I couldn't even write about it. Thank you Sylvia for doing this.

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
