09/28 Update: The gunman shot one of the student hostages before shooting and killing himself. The 16- year old student has died from her wounds. There is more to this story than meets the eye … I will keep you all informed. We have friends in Bailey, I cannot imagine the grief these families are undergoing. Is your quiet, out- of- the- way town next for a tragedy like this? This is why we homeschool.
Original post dated 09/27: A gunman entered a Bailey, Colorado high school today and took hostages. The hostage standoff has been resolved and the gunman has been killed. Bailey is a teeny mountain town in a rural, out- of- the way place; the last place in the country you would think would have something like this. We know some homeschooling families who live in Bailey. Their children were not subjected to this horrific event, because they homeschool.
I can’t imagine the terror those kids and families had to go through.
BTW, I am very grateful for the “Religion of Peace” link on your sidebar. My DH and I will …well, I don’t know if “enjoy” is an appropriate word…but, we will certainly spend much time on the site, in the company of like-minded authors.
