I remember the day trading incident well, although I didn't live here at the time. Mr. Barton drove to north Cobb County and ended his life at a gas station off the 92 exit.
That was a crazy day in Atlanta...as was the Perimeter Mall shooting in 1990 that left 5 wounded and 1 dead.

For some reason, hardly anyone in the school is talking about it. When VT happened, it was all over for days. When the Kennesaw shooting happened, it was on the news, but after that, it was like it faded into the background. I still think about it because I was so close to where it happened.

As for Barton, I was pretty young when that happened. At the time, the Columbine shooting and the Atlanta shooting spree were still in my mind. Wait a minute, I think Barton was the same person. I think I remember now. I know about the shooting, just not the names.

Well I had just left campus and the cops would not let us drive down barrett lakes. So sad. I wish the violence would just stop.
