Where wild minds come to rest

Near where I live in Florida, there was a school shooting recently. 17 people died. Now, I'm homeschooled, so I don't really have anything on the outside world to worry about, but here is my problem. 

I have a character in my daydream who is a school shooter (I know it may sound weird to some but it just has to do with the plot). Well, he kills 17 people later in his life (agian, plot. It's too complicated to explain right now lol) when I first turned on the news and heard 17 people died in a school shooting, it just kinda hit me in the face. Just "wow, what? How could that even be possible that in my imaginary world and the real one be so the same?" It must sound silly (and it does to me too  tbh) that I make such a big deal out of it, and I know it's just a coincidence, but something inside feels like it's my fault this happened. Something makes me really scared that what I daydreamed may come true (it's stupid, I know) since the reports mimicked what happened in my daydream. Now, I understand that's not true, my daydream simply can't impact the world like that. It's just scary to me how similar these events where. 

I guess I want to know how many other people have had something like this happen.  Have you ever had something in your daydream coincidentally be like something in real life like this? 

(Sorry, this post is a ramble lol)

Having a day dream that specific would really freak me out! I channel my daydreaming into writing, and lately it seems like whatever state I choose as my setting has a disaster hit in real life. It's not a fun coincidence and really makes me think.

I don't remember a coincidence as striking as that. But think: if you're like me, you often spend hours a day dreaming up different scenarios. Unless you're just repeating yourself over and over, that's a lot of scenarios. They're bound to come up in real life.

Especially considering many of them are probably based on real experiences. Reality repeats itself.
