Karl Fisch, Reconciliation Commission of Canada, Jan 07, 2014
Commentary by Stephen Downes

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.
