Tragedy, twice

Two tragedies, twice over.  Columbine and Aurora are mere miles apart, and to experience two of the worst massacres in American history is tragic indeed.  How do you cope with such horror once?  I have no idea.  But to think that there are probably many people who lost friends of friends, loved ones of loved ones in each of the horrendous events?  How can they cope?
And then there is the gut-wrenching, tear-inducing story of the woman who was present at a shooting in Toronto -- yes, even in Toronto the good -- a month or so ago, who survived the horror there.  And today she is a victim.  Her family --- how hard they must have thanked God or providence or luck a month ago --- and how hard this must be for them now.

Yours, reaching out in sympathy, and recoiling in horror from the actions,
