I could write his name here, but I'd hate to give that sack of skin any further publicity.
I actually just read his ENTIRE weblog -dating back from December up until yesterday morning. I have no idea how it is still available online (I'm guessing not for too much longer), but it is. The guy was a sad, sad case. Seemed very up and down in his emotions. Seemed lonely, alone, desperate...and also cold, angry, hateful and full of rage. I feel sick saying this - knowing that one girl is dead and 2 more victims are 'extremely critical', not to mention the thousands of students, parents, citizens who will be affected for a long time to come - but I almost pity the guy. I do NOT understand, condone, rationalize what he did - but he comes off as someone with obvious unresolved issues and pain and the only way to deal was to become introverted and angry and hate everything and everyone until he absolutely believed the rest of the world was unhinged - instead of himself.
It's sad. It's tragic that it came to this. The death of this innocent girl is an indescribable loss.
I'm sad. I'm sad for her family. I'm sad for kids who will feel unsafe at school forever. I'm sad for a city that has experienced this for the 3rd time. I'm sad for the world changing like this. I'm sad for kids who are bullied in school and have no where to turn and no one to talk to. I'm sad for kids whose parents don't take the time to find out about their lives. SIGH.
One day at a time, Montreal.
