0276 - Four Things to Take Away From the School Shooting in Chardon, Ohio

/
My heart goes out to those affected by yesterday's events in Chardon. Early this afternoon the third victim died despite the efforts of those involved. I have invested a good bit of time today to try and bring truthful and quality information to you regarding the incidents yesterday. Part of that time was invested in talking with folks who are connected to the situation to try and gather facts on the situation. My goal with today's show is to take some general lessons from school violence and discuss. Much of the information coming from the event are still pretty fuzzy so understand that unless I specifically note a connection with the shooting in Chardon I am speaking in general terms. If I encourage something to be done I am not doing so because I believe it wasn't done in Chardon.

Imagine me, unable to break my grasp on a fluffy stuffed animal, unable to draw my pistol, beating off two dirtbags with a fluffy stuffed animal in each hand. A flailing, furry, mess for sure. Yeah, this is the kind of stuff that goes through my head.

If you spend any time watching National Geographic type television, you undoubtedly see the classic scene where the predator gobbles up the unsuspecting prey. It truly is natural selection at work, and all predators are experts at spotting the easy targets.

My wife and I are very blessed in that we have successfully structured our lives to place family as a top priority. This past weekend we made a trip to the south to spend time with extended family to celebrate a birthday. The drive we made was a total of about 13 hours. That amount of time in the car can certainly tire you out. It did me. Today we will take a look at the consequences that resulted from my fatigue.
