Closing Thought–14Apr20

We have heard all the reports of the deaths, shortages and lack of responses……and most schools are out and probably for the rest of the school year.

There is one sad stat that has come out of the virus…..no one is dying in schools from mass shootings…..

The nationwide lockdown to stem the rise of the coronavirus has had one silver lining—March 2020 was the first March since 2002 without a school shooting. 

“Depressing on mulitple levels,” said New York Times reporter Annie Karni.

Washington Post reporter Robert Klemko made the observation Monday morning on Twitter.

“Heartbreaking statistic,” tweeted the Wall Street Journal‘s Robbie

Whelan in reply.

A classic good news/bad news.
