This morning, Barb at work came in and told the story of how the South Milwaukee High School was in lock down because of an incident between students. She had been dropping off her daughter when the police and ambulances started to arrive on the scene. She went to the office to find out what was happening and was told very little. After she arrived, her daughter called on the cell phone and informed her about the incident. One student stabbed another student. At the office, we talked how things have changed, as much as they stayed the same. When I was in High School, there was violence, and police came, but at no time was the school shut down, the situation was basically handled and the day went on as usual. Now, schools lock down, counselors are called in for the students, and it is headline news. It is unsettling that these things occur.
