Memorial for Va. shooting victims

By The News & Advance

On the one-year anniversary of their deaths, three victims of a shooting spree that left eight dead are being remembered by students and staff at Appomattox County High School.

Three of the dead in the Jan. 19, 2010, killings were students at Appomattox High School.

Wednesday, staff placed three vases of yellow roses beside engraved bricks in the school's memorial garden. The bricks bear the names of Ronald "Bo" Scruggs, Emily Quarles and Morgan Dobyns.

The News & Advance of Lynchburg reported that Principal Michael Myers said the three "touched and enriched our lives."

Christopher Speight has been charged with capital murder in connection with the Appomattox shootings. The dead include his sister, her husband and their two children.

How many tragic deaths will it take before we realize that the ubiquitous availability of firearms is a bad idea?
