Earlier today I noticed that Jennie was upset by something in the back yard. I let her out and heard the sound of multiple helicopters overhead. This has happened before when there were bad accidents on I-5, so I turned on the TV news. Shocked to discover a shooting had happened at one of our 2 local high schools (the one my nephew attended). 2 students have died and 4 are terribly injured. Evidently the 4 in the hospital were shot in the head. Unbelievable.

Please include them in your prayers. If you are on twitter, #PrayforPilchuck was started by local students who are tracking the responses. Let's let them know we are paying attention.

Today was Jennie's 6 month birthday. Instead of celebrating, I spent the day glued to the TV and she spent the day glued to me. She is so sweet and intuitive when it comes to my moods. I am soooo lucky to have found her!

Thanks for your support,
Susan

I'm so sorry. After Columbine, I just couldn't imagine it happening again, and again, and again...

There is just nothing about someone taking another life that makes sense to me, but I am floored when children take the life of another life. What a sad state of mind this world has become.

Definitely Pilchuck is in my prayers.

It has just gotten worse and worse over the weekend. The students involved were all freshman, most just 14 years old. One of the girls has since died, one girl and one boy are still in critical condition and the other boy is in stable condition and improving.

The shooter was popular. A football player and wrestler. He had just been named the freshman homecoming prince the week before. But one of the boys slept with his girlfriend and he couldn't handle it. It's been a long time since I was 14 and I know our kids live in a different world, but this shocked the heck out of me.
