While I was enjoying the quiet, tranquility and beautiful colors of Arkansas, a whole lot of evil was happening in San Bernadino, California.
I was watching TV in horror as everything was unfolding right in front of my eyes. My heart was hurting for the victims and their families and for the people being escorted out, not grasping at what was happening around them.
My mind and prayers also went to the 911 Dispatchers and First Responders. Even though they have extensive training, nothing could possibly prepare them for what was going on and unfolding right in front of their eyes.
Pure evil was at work to destroy and take innocent lives and change a city and its people living there forever.
Tears were streaming down my face and the sobs got heavier.
As the news shared more about multiple fatalities, I lost it big time. Memories of Dominic’s death came flooding back and the sound of someone telling me over the phone that he was dead. I knew that many people would hear these exact words, followed by seeing pictures on TV of their deceased loved ones along with the smug faces of the killers. It re-opened the wound in my heart. So many lives have changed within a split second and not just the immediate family, but the friends, coworkers and neighbors.
This will affect us all in one way or another, for the rest of our lives.
These 2 evil Terrorists hated so deeply that they didn’t even care about their 6 month old baby becoming a orphan.
Whatever our Government is calling this, we all KNOW what and who this was and that this will continue unless our Government steps up and does something about it.
But in the meantime we all learned AGAIN how quickly life as we know it can change.
Love and laugh, enjoy every moment of this precious life.
My prayers, thoughts and Domhugs go out to the city of San Bernadino
