  • last friday, german Littleton in Erfurt (former DDR)

    Hi All,

    last Friday we had a very horrible day in east germany. In a school a 19 years old guy killed 16 persons (13 teachers, 2 students, 1 police officer) and at last himself.

    I don't know how hard Littleton in the USA was for you, but this was unimaginable for us.

    Here in germany we've much more stronger weapon rights, but this guy got these weapons in normal, legal way.

    Did you here in the USA of this act in germany?

    How do you feel about those things?

        I was really saddened to see something like this happened to your country (or anywhere for that matter.) I remember when Littleton happened here. I was at a company sales meeting with a mother of some kids that went to a neighboring school. Apparently her kids were very goods friends with some of the victims. She was in shock and left the meeting early so she could fly home and be with her kids.

          Yes, and he did this murderer on the day when his former school friends wrote their last exam

          We're here totaly confused, that something like this can happen.

              Really depressing...

              Hi all,
              the whole tragedy took place in 10-15 minutes, he apparently had planned this desaster very well.

                  All we can do is protect the future, and understand that we can not protect a person from themself.

                  What can we do to prevent it from happening again?

                  I am sadden to hear that people's lives were lost, and I am most sadden by the teen thinking the only way was violence
