As I write this I will be leaving to go to the 9pm Campus Vigil. My wife had cousin whose daughter was in the cafeteria of the May 21, 1998 Springfield, Ore shooting. My desk is less than 1 mile away from Cole Hall. At 3:08 A Squad car went past at 60-70 miles an hour. I sit a block away from a busy intersection. I had a customer sitting with me and I said: Wow I have been sitting at this desk for 14 years and have never seen a squad car go by that fast. A few minutes later one of our mechanics, who is a volunteer fire fighter, told us a level 5 ambulance call went out. That ment EVERY available ambulance in the county to respond. People from the university began picking up their cars and trucks. One lady works in the same building as the campus PD told us of officers coming with large blood satins. I had close friends son of whom I have baby sat for was walking into the area as people were running out, screaming to run the other way. We got a fed-Ex delivery at 3:20ish, He said he was delivering books, head popping, he looked into his van because he thought boxes were falling down. We at the store have many connections to people affected by this since-less tragedy. We are 2 blocks from the Campus. The question will always remain: Why? Life is on a thread. We must be ready for that thread to snap. Is there an after-life? I believe so. I also have the confidence of where I will spend eternity. If anyone reading this posting doesn’t have that confidence, I would be more that happy to talk to you about it. Please say a prayer for our community. Thanks
