Virginia Tech - 1 year on

It is a year ago yesterday that a mentally disturbed man went on a shooting rampage at Virginia Tech university. Thirty-two people lost their lives.

Guns are still too readily available to those in whose hands they should not belong. People with problems in mental health still fall under the radar, and do not reappear until it is too late.

  7. Hard to believe it has been a year ~ seems like only yesterday.   What is the expression about not learning from history we are doomed to repeat it.  If someone is disturbed and people know they are dangerous our ridiculous privacy laws should be thrown out the window.
