School Stabbing Outside of Pittsburgh (Franklin Regional, Murrysville)

The stabbing at the high school near Pittsburgh hit far too close to home. I grew up 10 minutes from Franklin Regional. I took tennis lessons at Franklin Regional High School's tennis courts. I took the SATs at the high school. I was in the band in high school, and watched/played at football games there. One of my friends from high school was caught for underage drinking at one of those football games. My orthodontist's office was across the street from the high school campus. It's very close to home for me.

Too close, really, as some of my friends who still live in the area have kids who go to school in that district. One of them posted on her facebook page that they found out her daughter's elementary school, which is on the same campus as the high school, was closed right before heading out to get the bus.

I hope and pray that all victims recover with minimal mental and physical scars, and I hope that since the kid who did this is still alive, they can find out why he did it, and perhaps help others who might do the same thing.

Hug your kids and loved ones a bit tighter tonight, and say a prayer for the victims, their families, and all of those affected by this.
