Subject: [heartlight] So Sad

It is hard to imagine the horror in a school shot up, again. Like, people
don't get it. I wonder if at some point we will be forced to see the
problem. Maybe they'll again impose severer disciplines and restrictions.
When will we correctly name schools "social prisons"? Children genetically
are open to a wide variety of resopnses. But how we treat them is how it

So sad,
