The fear of death follows from the fear of life. A man who lives fully is prepared to die at any time.

Death captured…

A striking set of photos that captures the last moments of a Syrian rebel fighter before and after being shot by a sniper. His comrades quickly rush in to pull him out of the street and try to save him but the man would die from his wounds shortly after the last photo.

History Lesson

38 elementary school children, 6 adults…that was the death toll of the worst school massacre in U.S history…and it wasn’t committed with guns.

The Bath School Massacre occurred in Bath Township, Michigan in 1927.

The bomber was school board treasurer Andrew Kehoe, 55, who was enraged about a property tax levied to fund the construction of the school building. He blamed the additional tax for financial hardships which led to foreclosure proceedings against his farm. These events apparently provoked Kehoe to plan his attack. He died in a car bomb he set off after he drove up to the school as the crowd gathered to rescue survivors from the burning school.

On the morning of May 18, Kehoe murdered his wife by beating her to death, then set his farm buildings afire. As fire fighters arrived at the farm, an explosion devastated the north wing of the school building, killing many schoolchildren. He used a detonator to ignite dynamite and hundreds of pounds of pyrotol which he had secretly planted inside the school over the course of many months. As rescuers started gathering at the school, Kehoe drove up, stopped, and detonated a bomb inside his shrapnel-filled vehicle with his Winchester rifle, killing himself and the school superintendent, and killing and injuring several others. During rescue efforts searchers discovered an additional 500 pounds (230 kg) of unexploded dynamite and pyrotol planted throughout the basement of the school’s south wing. Kehoe apparently had intended to blow up and destroy the whole school.

While there was one gun present, a Winchester rifle, it was used to detonate the bomb in his own vehicle. It was used as a tool, which is what a gun is. It was never invented to be used as a detonation device, nor was the car invented to be used to hold explosives and become a mobile bomb. The individual is to blame.

What else does this teach us? That if someone is so intent on wrecking havoc, they will find a way, guns or no guns.
