You might have heard in the news that Nova Scotia, where I live, suffered a mass shooting over the weekend.
Nineteen people are dead and authorities expect they will find more victims in five burned-out homes across a 100 km route taken by the shooter. He had dressed as a police officer and drove a vehicle made to look identical to a police cruiser, which undoubtedly contributed to his ability to both get close to his victims and elude authorities over a period of twelve hours. The deaths to date all occurred in rural areas or villages.
Our family is all safe but not untouched by the deaths. Close family members lost a friend, and a community member, and another victim grew up a few streets from us.
I have no words for this, beyond stating the facts.
I'll be back, but not until I process this more.
Stay well, my friends.
