I'm scared to go back to school.

I go to a high school a few miles from Arapahoe, and after the shooting I'm just scared to go back to school. I know it wouldn't likely happen, but it's just the idea that scares me. I knew people at Arapahoe too so it has really affected me. They aren't canceling school though, what do I do?

It bothers everyone. I felt queasy going to school in Virginia after the Connecticut shooting. You're not the only one that's afraid. I promise. You'll have to go, fight through the mental boundary. Teaches will try to act like nothing happened, although there may be a moment of silence. They'll be encouraging, telling you that you're safe.

You just go, and pretend you aren't scared. More than likely the school will have some support system in place.

Look its bad since there was a shooting thats the world for ya
Mother earth throughs obstacles at us and she wants to either fear them and fall or rise and over come them
but what you going to do when there is a shooting right down the street from your house?
are your going to run away or be strong and defend whats yours?

you're not alone. I bet 90% of the school, faculty included are nervous. just take it one class at a time, one day at a time.
