I feel like I just said something similar to this.

 Today at my school, there was a stabbing. It was horrible, traumatizing, and unbelievable.

 It could have easily been me, or my sister. It happened right outside of her classroom, right where I have waited for her to get out of class. For some reason today, I decided not to wait for her and went home instead.

 Thank you God.

 Otherwise, it could have been me.

 It happened right outside of her classroom, she saw the guy running back and forth in front of the classroom door, and heard the screams of the students whom he stabbed. Thank you God for the locks on those doors and for keeping her in the classroom the entire length of class.

 4 students were life flighted, and I read on the news that 2 are in critical condition. 10 others have also been injured, and hundreds have been traumatized. So please say a prayer for our campus, and for my sister, who is still shaken by this even worse than me. She was locked in the classroom until they cleaned up some of the scene. She still heard the screams and saw the blood and I sure wish I could erase that from her memory for her.

 Thank you God, for keeping us safe.
