Growing up we saw people home walking the streets, we know the people that we would distinctly know were "crazy" or "para" and we would try to keep our distance. Something happened to those people, and when the family can no longer cope with the issues they turn their backs and the affected are homeless! The recent shooting in Tallahassee has many wondering WHY?
This was one of the first things I uttered when I awoke to see the news on the television.
Mr. Mays is being said to have been suffering from mental illness and we are now hearing of this only after this tragedy occurred. Students go to school to learn and never ever feel they have to try to protect themselves from bullets. How are so many people getting access to weapons that can harm our children. Even if a person may not have been shot, but witnessed the act it still plays a toll on them!
I handled a gun once and did not feel liberated using it but rather very fearful of the weapon.
The parents, students, and friends of FSU have to deal with something that will continuously haunt them for years. I pray that the affected are able to deal with the situation and the gentleman in critical condition pulls through.
Mr. Mays' family I am sure is left with so many questions wondering just what happened and why.
Mental illness is no joke, it affects more people in the family than you could imagine.
Inspire. Motivate. Enrich. Bless. Cherish. Love.
