First there were bomb threats (and one explosion) in Tampa Bay area schools, and then school shootings in California and Pennsylvania. School safety is again in the news.
We want to know how these recent events have affected you. Do you worry about these things happening at your school, or do you consider them to be isolated incidents that have no impact on your life? Why do you think such things are happening today? How could they be prevented?
Let us know what you think. We will publish some of your answers on a future Xpress page. Address your responses to "Xpress Wants to Know," c/o Pamela Davis, and send them 1) by mail to The St. Petersburg Times, P.O. Box 1121, St. Petersburg, FL 33731 (2) by fax to (727) 892-2327 or (3) by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with "XPRESS WANTS TO KNOW" in the subject field.
