It’s sad. I have a sister with schizophrenia, onset in her teens. The writings I read from this kid reminded me very much of my sisters writings back then. So very sad.

I am warmed by the people of tucson. No matter what, the parents had nothing to do with it. This must be so horrific for them.

My oldest son 32 years old is also Schizophrinic. Onset early 20’s. I wish people would understand the helplessness of family members.

I told my sister the other night that I live in fear everyday that my son may become a victim or hurt somebody. This tragedy underscores that fear.

thank God he is in the system and would not be permitted to purchase a weapon.

He’s looking more and more like another Charles Whitman, though Whitman did try to get help for himself and it doesn’t appear that Loughner ever did.
