    I'm so impressed with this mother. So very impressed. I wish we could all be that courageous, forgiving, and Christ-like.

    I hope the young man can make this a learning experience. It's sad that someone had to perish but the mother showed what it is to be a true mother, to forgive. I think we can all learn something from her example and who knows maybe from the example of a young man who made a terrible mistake.

    Old too soon, smart too late.

    This is a sad outcome. I hope that other youth learn from this, guns and violence do not solve anything. I pray that the peace of the Lord may comfort the family members and all that have been hurt in this tragic incident. We can never know why things happen as they do but it is reassuring to know that families will be reunited after this life.
