You start to wopnder what our world is coming to. A young boy who was bullied brings a gun to school and starts shooting. Then you have three members of a family who are reportedly stabbed in an argument and one dies. Then we fiond out that no, one of the victims was stabbed the night before in Mpls. I feel so sorry for my grandchildren and what we've left them.
