REACTION: As I read this news about the bomb threats

to the schools and colleges, this was so risky to every student,
workers, schools also to the place and people that are near
around to the place where the bomb threats are said that is
planted, I can only say that this kind of issues are big deal to
everyone, cause we all dont know what will happen or thinking
that if it is not true or true, asking our self should I believe or not
cause in every decision that we make and in every steps that we
take, it all have a costs good or bad it will happen, so it is good to
think and ask if it is true but then Im asking myself why is that
person tried to threats this schools, so maybe that person have a
personal issues in that schools or maybe something that we both
dont know. This issues may affect all the schools and colleges,
that already had or experience the bomb threat, cause people
may aware on that kind of issues so if they know that this school
receives a bomb threats, they will have fear to enter that school
or into that college, so it may affect the business of the school
and colleges, just because of the bomb threats . In this news,
good to know that they already give alarm to everyone that may
be involve to the bomb threats, and also they announce that the
day has no classes to make sure that no one will harm and no
lives will suffer. The MPD helped to check all the surroundings of

the schools and they confirm that all the campuses are cleared
and safe.
