"It's such a fine line between stupid an' clever..." - Spinal Tap
It could have been so much worse. SO much worse.
I have a lot of buddies over there, some that are at that school, some that just live close......just sad, unfortunate and dissapointing.But Webs is right- it coulda been far worse.
A horrible thing. More terrible because the motivation is so hard to understand.
Speaking as a member of the Gothic sub-culture to which this tormented young man belonged (we both perused the www.vampirefreaks.com website) I can honestly say that, while I absolutely DO NOT condone or excuse what he did, I think I understand where his head and heart were when he decided to commit this heinous act of violence. There are a lot of young people out there who are hurting so badly, they just want to die in a blaze of glory and destruction. I saw a lot of that as a teenager, and now councel young'uns in the Goth/punk/homeless community who are teetering on the verge of self-destruction, as I once did.It's all so tragic and pointless.KJC
