Sandy Hook Elementary School Shooting Victims
A reminder that a problem continues to exist here in the United States, Je Suis Dick and Jane, every year 10,000 children are injured or killed by gun shots. Most of these shootings are not attributable to a religious ideology or to quench an exercise of freedom of expression.
Just looking back over the last fifteen years and noting only cases where ten or more individuals have died in a single school shooting incident here is the short list:
- April 20, 1999 - Columbine High School - 15 Dead, 21 Injured
- March 21, 2005 - Red Lake Indian Reservation - 10 Dead, 7 Injured
- April 16, 2007 - Virginia Tech - 33 Dead, 25 Injured
- December 14, 2012 - Sandy Hook Elementary School - 28 Dead, 2 Injured
Where is the indignation, where is the protest? N'êtes-vous pas Dick et Jane?
