The shooting in Illinois has left yet more questions as to WHY? Why must people be so unstable and unhappy in the Life that they have been given and have to take innocent lives. Why then, must they take and turn the gun on themselves?

They never have to face the consequences, from their actions! This type of news is so disturbing, but we do want to know about it...yet more and more unstable/unhappy people see all of the publicity that tradgedies like this receive....and they want to be "famous" too....so they become a gunman as well. How very sad!

My Heart goes out to the families (every family) that has ever been touched by such tragedy. No one person should ever have to feel a void for someone else's senseless actions. May GOD give you the strength you need, to help you heal. The Heaven's now have Angels to watch over each of you....thou it does not make it any easier. Know that they are Forever in your Heart. Prayers & Blessings to each of you, ~Tonya

Thanks for this post. This is our local University, only about 15 miles from here. Alot of our friends have children who attend NIU. It's very difficult to process this type of tragedy.

I work hard at every opportunity to try and work against the stigma of mental illness, but these incidents make it all the harder. I notice that one of the mental health workers who dealt with him said that he didn't want to admit to having a problem. That type of attitude keeps you from getting the level of help that you need. I would love for some psychologists to study why these people harm perfect strangers.

T~This is just the saddest kind of news we can get, isn't it? I agree with you completely..I don't understand this kind of thinking either...it's all just so unfair. I am praying with you for peace and comfort for all the families and friends affected by this terrible tragedy. Susan
