I don't know, because no one has told me. Of course, I wasn't there to hear the message.
If I had been the Principal, I would have offered a moment of silence in memory of Cyrus.
AND I would have admonished all the students to THINK before they act. And not to do stupid stuff.
And I would have been fired before noon.
Why was a 14-year-old carrying a gun? And why, when he went shopping in a convenience store while visiting in the neighborhood eight miles south of his school and home? The location doesn't matter. Why did he have the gun, at all? (And yes, he did have a gun.)
Did he have the gun when he got a ride there? Did he get the gun after he got there?
Whose gun was it? Where did it come from? Had he ever carried it before? Who knew about it?
I'm sorry for the hell that Cyrus' family is going through.
