At 9:33AM this morning we received a text from Our youngest Daughter Bailey saying that the High School was in CODE RED Lock Down. I was lying down and my wife Joey yelled thru the house for me to find out what was going on. I called the school only to be told that there was a shooting at Our High School and that all the kids where locked down and safe, but couldn't be told anything else at this time. Joey and I flew over to the school only to be directed to park off school grounds until the all clear was given. After another hour or so we started getting reports that a student had shoot himself in the Commons area between some of the buildings and that he was the only injury at that time. At 12:20PM we were finally allowed to get into a 4 block long line to get Our children out of school with proper ID. We had been in contact with both Our Daughters and knew where they were and that they both were OK thru out this terrible ordeal. Our oldest was to leave school with the rest of her marching band members on their Spring trip to Dallas for the weekend at 10AM and Bailey was going to come home at 3:45PM after school dismissals. I finally got Bailey at around 2PM and then saw Briley off on the trip at 2:20PM. The student that was injured was apparently attempting suicide at school, he did die during the Air Transport to San Antonio.
This has been a very trying time for everyone here in the Seguin, TX area and My PRAYERS go out to the Family who lost a son today and also to all those trying to deal with such a horrible event. May GOD give Us All PEACE and COMFORT thru this ordeal.
