My wonk

It's been an off day for me today. Memories of stuff long past were dredged to the surface by the news of the tragedy in Virginia.

When it happened at Penn State, there was only one fatality, luckily.

The part that has me in a funk now, as it did then, is that I knew the perpetrator.  She was one of our group of friends.  Not part of the "tight" group, but part of the group nonetheless.  We had no warning that something like this was coming.  None whatsoever.  But now, as then, I'm wracking my brain wondering if we could have prevented it.

The tragedy in Virginia is just horrific.  There are really no words.
