I think part of the problem with children with personality disorders or whatever the issue may have been, is once the child is 18 or out of the school system, the programs are no longer available. Now these young adults and their families are just out there to fend for themselves.
One thing that really was a eye opener for me this weekend, is when I was talking about this to my children, yes, they were upset but not upset and shocked the same way my husband and I were. I realized that this is the new norm for my children's generation. The Oklahoma bombing, Columbine, 9/11 all happenned when they were toddlers or before they were born. Mall shootings and cinema shootings are something that they have always been aware of. It is really a sad world to grow up in.
I also don't think I could be as brave as those teachers were. I am amazed at how heroic ALL of them were, not just one or two.
