When is the violence going to end?  A 6 yo boy was taken hostage from his school bus by a deranged man who killed his bus driver.  They are held up with in a bunker, surrounded by police.  From what I understand, the man was just looking for hostages and believes the government is out to get him.

I'm so tired of all the gun violence, they just need to be gone!  

As I'm getting ready to post this, get an AP alert on my phone that there is a shooting in Phoenix, police say that someone shot several people in an office complex :(  I'm so tired of this...

Such an awful story, from the last I heard earlier today the boy was still being held hostage. There has been another school shooting in Atlanta at a middle school :(

That poor little boy- and all of the people on the bus.  I'm tired of it too.  Every day it seems there is a new report of a new shooting.  Something needs to be done. I don't know what the answers are, but something needs to change. And fast.  :(
