How can I want to have kids?

My husband and I are trying to start a family... But this article I found on a local t.v. news website makes me wonder why:

" (Toledo, OH) --- Police are investigating what's being a possible "Columbine-type shooting massacre" that said would take place Friday or Monday at Washington Local schools, a police spokesperson said.
Sgt. Richard Murphy, Toledo police, told NBC24 that authorities are aware of the threat, they are investigating it, and they are ready for it.
A 14-year old student from Washington Junior High School and her mother filed a police report after receiving word about the threat. The alledged planned shooting involved a hit list with the names of at least seven female students on it, including the girl who filed the police report. The girl gave police names of two possible male suspects who she described as loners and not very popular.
Supposedly the two suspects have brought guns to the school before, police were told."

I wasn't very popular in high school, either. But I never would have even thought about considering taking any kind of weapon to school. And the girls at my school did some pretty mean things to me.

How long before the human race becomes extinct, by using everything up, and killing each other off?!

Makes me sick.

Mass extinctions. God has engineered them before, many times. "No, that's not what I had in mind." Zap. Our turn. Asteroid, cosmic x-ray outburst, nearby supernova. His arsenal is endless. Our only defense is the next generation. Maybe THEY can get it right. "A child is God's affirmation that life should continue." Not sure I agree. More a second (3d, 4th, etc.) chance.
Don't worry about it. We are not of this world. We are aliens here, citizens of Heaven living in a foreign land. We must not "do as the Romans do" but behave as if we were Home, where our Sovereign would approve of our behavior.
