Something was said, something was done

A week ago, news reports brought horrific descriptions of murder and mayhem wrought by an angry young man who had threatened violence at a public school, then acted on his threats.

Perhaps that influenced decisions by a student who reported a threat at an area school, and how administrators and deputies responded to that threat.

Or, perhaps the student would have reported that threat had it occurred weeks earlier, and officials would have responded the same way.

Whatever the case, these facts remain: A student noticed something and said something, and those in charge acted on that information. Good.

We’ll never know how much grief was saved due to the actions of those individuals. And that’s good, too.
