I don’t have anything illuminating to say about this tragedy. Like most everyone reading this, I’m sad and confused.
There was an on campus shooting at my university while I was a student. Two women, roommates and friends, were murdered by a man who was obsessed with one of them. He’d held a fairly large group of students hostage at one point. He let most of them leave. But not two women. I hope the familes and survivors have found some peace in the intervening decades. I’m sure today’s events refresh their grief.
Peace. We need peace. Peace will come. Let it begin with us.
