Sad reminder

Today is a sad reminder that this world is dark. Some of you may have heard about this seeing as it made national news pretty quick. I was in 3rd period when I heard about it and I live in Bakersfield. This morning there was a shooting at Taft High school near Bakersfield, Ca. A student shot two others, one was air lifted to a hospital in Bakersfield and the other only sustained minor injuries thankfully no one died. I find this a little scary since I'm in the same school district as Taft and the school district in its handbook they give parents that it is the safest school district in California. Even though schools in the district have an armed police officer a lot of things happen. This isn't the first shooting in this school district and there have been many stabbings at them as well. Thankfully my school has yet to have any incidents like this but it is still a relatively new school and I'm sure that in a few years it will be just as bad as the rest of the high schools here. It is a kind of scary thought that even the "safest" high school district in Ca. isn't that safe.
