~Prayers for Chardon, Ohio~
I've had a very difficult time trying to post anything this week. The senseless shootings at Chardon High School, which is our neighboring school district, has permeated all my thoughts and prayers. You cannot go anywhere around here without finding that every set of eyes that meet yours have the same, sad look about them. You each know what the other is thinking.
So far, three young men have lost their lives, one is still critical, and one very lucky young lady was discharged yesterday to her family.
Kudos go out to the teachers and faculty, the fire and police departments, the FBI, and the students for following directions at a time of fear. Praise to the teacher who chased the shooter out of the building, possibly saving more lives.
Please keep the families of the victims, as well as the tortured young man and his grandparents, in your prayers. There will need to be a great deal of healing here in NE Ohio.
