Response to Virgina Tech Shootings
By Sara Schroeder

I disagree with both Mr. Bell and Mr. Piercy, and have to say
that they both might need a history lesson. Though more recent
national violence has been by a foreigner(s), history has shown
us that even a White American can have violent tendencies. Take
the Oklahoma City bombing, the Colombine shooting, the NASA shooting,
Nickel Mines in PA, and countless other school shootings for
example. And just where do we Americans think we came from? We
were all pretty much born on American soil, but what about our
ancestors? We as a human race all come from the same place, and
yes we may be foreigners and immigrants when we venture out of
our home county, but are we really? On top of that South Korea
held a vigil to honor those who died in the shooting, and to
apologize to the families, and Seung-Hui Cho's family has apologized
too. What I am trying to say, is that anyone can go and buy a
gun and shoot people -- anyone, white, black, yellow, and red.
The only thing that I see in common with the majority of these
acts is that they are Male.
And by the way Bill Gates is an American.
And so is Frank Lloyd Wright
And Thomas Edison
Ohh and Henry Ford
