Hey, this is a good poem, but an awful situation. As for home schooling, you may be safer, but you miss a lot of things like making new friend, sports, clubs, esc. And although gun control would be wonderful, it's not going to get to the underlying problem. I think that the big problem today is the deteroration of morals. Many Americans have simply lost their morals, and I see it every day. I am a sophomore in High school, and I just visited my friend in the hospital after having a misscarrage. The father was no where to be found. Every day I see some people my age or younger smoking, chewing, drinking... and why? Because many of us have lost our morals. Well, there's my 2 cents.
"We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars." -Oscar Wilde
