Oh! and if you did know about this, and sent an ##### to our school, then thank you for the support. :) We'll never be able to get over it, but we'll get by.  Thanks! :) R.I.P Mrs Maguire, gone but never forgotten...  :angel (Sorry for clogging up this debate, but the moral of the story is world wide, people are getting away with crimes like murder, and/or hurting somebody seriously...  This needs to be stopped... If the death penalty came back, I know for a fact it would scare people into doing the right thing, I don't know about America, but I'm sure it would in England.)
