Have you heard the news about the Friday shooting at the University of Alabama? If you haven’t heard the story, read this little blurb about it here. I can’t get this off my mind. Three people killed when a biology professor was denied tenure. And they were shot at a faculty meeting. Absolutely awful. My heart goes out to everyone involved in this situation. I’ve had very vivid fears of precisely this situation, so when I was talking to Mom earlier this weekend and she passed the story along, I just couldn’t believe it. But, I also very much COULD believe it and that makes all of it so much worse.
