Karl Fisch, who will be well known to readers of this newsletter, teaches at Arapahoe High School where late last year a gunman killed a student before killing himself. This post is a detailed description of the event from his own perspective, with a remarkable clarity of recollection. It's interesting how many times he refers to his training for such situations. I never had drills for nuclear attack as a child. Even so, as a child of the nuclear age I am still haunted by the idea that the bombs might fall any day. Nor have I ever had training for potential mass shooters in the building, but I can imagine the fears that sort of training would foster. I hope I never have to take such training, and I don't think people in Colorado (or anywhere else) should have to either.
