Good morning bees,
As I am sure many of you heard, there was a school shooting on Monday in Baltimore, MD. On the first day of school, a young man brought a disassembled shot gun to school and fired into the school cafeteria. Luckily, a faculty member tackled the boy and was able to keep him from firing off any additional shots (he brought 20 shells to school).
Sadly, the shooter did hit one student. His name is Daniel Borowy, and he is a 17-year-old young man with Down Syndrome. Daniel is currently in critical condition at Shock Trauma. He is known for his loving spirit and his want to always make everyone laugh. He is well loved in the community.
Daniel absolutely LOVES Lady Gaga. He even keeps a suitcase packed so that he can move to California and marry her. So, a family friend is trying to get the word out there to Gaga through FB and Twitter. She is working hard to convince the singer to visit her #1 fan in the hospital and brighten up his day.
Please, if you have a spare minute, do what you can to spread the word for this brave young man!
Here is a link to an article about the shooting and the effort:

For those who use Twitter, the hash tag is #GagaVisit Daniel
It has been so heart warming to see my community pull together in support of Daniel. I did not know him personally, but as a member of the community, and a teacher, this hits close to home. It would mean a lot to those involved if the community on the Bee could also help to bring a smile to Daniel’s face.

Sadly, it appears as if most people are overlooking it. It saddens me to think that if this was a poll about which dress I should choose or which baby name people like best it would have dozens of comments.
Ugh. This makes me very disenchanted with the bee. 🙁

This is so sad. I liked the facebook page and tweeted. I don’t know if it will do anything, but at least I’m spreading some kind of awareness.
