Shooting at Roseburg High
A school shooting
I thought it could never happen
not in my town
not in Roseburg
but I guess pain, anger and fear
are not bound by what I think
or by the population of a town
Our kids are safe in our schools, right?... Right?
I mean, this IS Roseburg.
Rural Oregon, timber town, family values
Isn’t that why we live here?
not ever again…
never… from this day on
will our kids be safe in our schools
the “it couldn’t happen here” sense of security is gone
stolen by a child in pain
violence can happen anywhere… any time
it happened here today
