Moment of near silence - 3.22 #sol21 Story Challenge

Whatever small slice of life I might've written about today is being set aside. This afternoon, in the town where I live, an armed person shot and killed multiple people at a grocery store. Details remain scant, hours later. (This blog entry sat on my screen for ages while I thought about what else to add. And then clicked Publish.)

  3. Oh my goodness; I just heard about it now. How terribly frightening and horrifying. Do you live in Boulder? Such a wonderful, idyllic place. I's so sorry. Sending positive thoughts and hugs to you and yours.

  5. I’ve been thinking*about you since I heard the news, hoping you didn’t stop for milk or Mac and cheese. Knowing that someone’s everything did. Wondering about those families shattered.

    1. Thanks for those thoughts. On a different day, that stop for milk or some other sundry could very well have happened for me in that spot. For 10 someones Monday, it did.
