CNN.com - Student kills principal, himself in Pennsylvania - Apr. 24, 2003
When I was in school, the most violent thing was football practice, followed closely by band camp hazing and standing in the cafeteria lines. Not trying to be funny - I've got no idea what it might feel like to feel unsafe from a fellow student. We felt some lingering threat from the Cold War, or bad weather, or whatever other thing outside the school that might threaten. But the rise in student violence - that's completely different. To think that the guy sitting behind me in math class could come in tomorrow and kill someone never crossed my mind or effected my life.
