Students to return New Mexico school

New Mexico's Berrendo Middle School reopens today, even though, many who return have no idea why a preteen brought a shotgun to the school and randomly shot at them.

And teachers have the daunting task Thursday of helping youngsters make sense of a shooting they themselves may not understand.

"Our teachers tomorrow have a very, very difficult and stressful day coming," Roswell Superintendent Tom Burris said at a news conference Wednesday. "Tomorrow they will all be counselors. Every staff member is in there working to prepare the kids for tomorrow."

    So how does a 12 year old get their hands on a gun anyways? Pretty irresponsible on the gun owners part.

    Kinda odd that no one was aware this kid had some kind of issue before this happened also. Usually SOMEONE knows somethings amiss, whether its a parent, sibling, friend, teacher or coach. But usually someone.

    Start working part time. I kept hearing other people tell me how much money they can make online so I decided to look into it. Well, it was all true and has totally changed my life. This is what I do……. JOBS333.C­O­M
