Sandy Promise

The parents of the 20 children whose lives were taken on December 14, 2012 in Newtown, Connecticut at the Sand Hook Elementary School have formed a group called Sandy Hook Promise. They want to have open minded discussions about a range of issues including guns, mental health and safety in schools and other places. As one of the mothers, stated “I do not want there to be a next time.”

I certainly understand that thinking as “I do not want there to be a next time” is exactly the reason Rosie Meysenburg & I have been tracking school shootings, workplace violence and murder/suicides for the past TWO DECADES. Our database of school shootings indicating which antidepressant (drugs that have both homicidal & suicidal ideation listed as side effects) the shooter was taking in 66 cases of school violence out of 68.
