Frank Howe A Song or Two for Colorado's Victims (102* d) RE: A Song or Two for Colorado's Victims 21 Apr 99


I teach future teachers. Yesterday as the events in Colorado were unfolding, I had to meet with 20 students who were about to go out into schools for a three week practical experience. It was a very difficult meeting. Dedicated caring young people had to pause and give serious consideration to the question "Do I really want to do this" not because the job is tough or underpaid we know that, we're used to that - their worries were ... 'can it happen to me?'

We reassured ourselves and reaffirmed the belief in the importance of what we do .... but for while as educators we were asking ourselves questions I thought only soldiers or police officers asked.

It was a sad day.
