This makes for a calm and happy life, but as I blathered on aimlessly on a Monday morning after the worst mass casualty shooting event in US history, I just looked...detached.
We studiously avoid the negative or provocative or troublesome on this here blog, and as you know, I leave politics, sex, religion, and anything else controversial to other outlets. This is just supposed to be a soft place to fall in the midst of big hard things going on in my life, but I am sorry that my post this morning was so damn...clueless.
The truth of the matter is that I didn't know about what had happened in Las Vegas until I arrived at the lab and saw it on the television there. My heart stopped and then broke, and I sat with the other folks in the waiting room thinking about and praying for the victims, the injured, the first responders, the families, the people that live and work there, and all of us here needing the strength, courage, and wisdom to come up with a solution to this (and many other) issues.
If you've been affected in any way...may God keep and bless you today and always.
