Stuns and stunned
As a Lincoln-Sudbury grad, I guess I'm inevitably monitoring the tragic killing
a little more closely than the average reader. I don't have any special insights into the incident due to my distant connection. But I have to say I'm not 'stunned' by the incident. Nor does it 'stun' me as a person who still spends a lot of time in Sudbury. Sadly, the incident merely confirms that modern schools -- both suburban and urban -- seem so vulnerable these days to Columbine-like violence. The entire situation is sad -- a far better word than stunned or stuns. ... Obviously, my heart goes out to both families, especially the Alensons. ...
