Right there with ya. My sons school actually had the nerve to try and ignore it today, but thanks to him and his friends they made it happen. I couldn't be prouder.
I remember. It was, and still is, the first and only time in now 4 generations that we went out and got a TV from our house and turned it on at work. My adopted son (the one referenced above) was 4 yrs old and going to move in with us later on that day; but all the government buildings shut down and we, understandably, had to wait.
I feel for all the families that have to go on living with a large empty hole in their lives just because some people half a world away don't like the fact that we, for generations, have busted ass to make this corner of the world ours and run it, safely, the way we like.
As a side note: I think for once the powers that be finally got a memorial right. A fountain with a flowing river of water that never seems to fill the hole. I personally feel that's exactly what every caring person feels about this senseless violence and what it caused.
