Last week there was an "Active Shooter" call at my college.
Turns out the call was actually "person with a gun" report and said person was never located (people get robbed at my college or even sexually assaulted with shockingly high regularity).
The thing was that the college handled what they believed to be an active shooter incident really badly.
They only shut down the Hall the subject with gun was supposed to be at, they misreported the "person with gun" as an active shooter, they did a really lousy job of alerting everybody, they did had no way of updating people easily once they had been alerted.
My math professor talked about how she's had active shooter training and that the scare was good because it showed everyone how much more they need to do to be prepared in case if there ever is an active shooter case.
Now today there's cops all over the campus way more than before, I saw them (campus police) pulling over some old homeless guy.
I don't have an opinion on the matter other than it's concerning that this is considered to be such a possibility.
That type of stuff is the reason why I keep my .22 in my truck at all times. I don't carry it into stores or anywhere else, but just having it when I'm on the road makes me feel safer knowing there are crazy people in the world.

It's funny how I no longer notice Valentine's day stuff anymore. I have never wished to celebrate it but in the past I was desperate to be loved and be someone's significant other. So it was a constant reminder that I was thirsty for love.
Now I don't really care anymore so I completely forgot about it.
It would be nice to be someone's girlfriend but for now I'm content being a crazy chicken lady.
