Knoxville Church Shooting

July 28, 2008

I used to live in Knoxville, TN before I moved back north to the Rust Belt. Yesterday I was watching CNN while washing dishes and I saw a tease for a story about the church shooting in Tennessee and my jaw dropped. From what I could see it looked like a church in Knoxville that friends and acquaintances attended. When CNN came back from the break, I was shocked and dismayed to find out that it was the church I thought it was. As near as I can tell no one that I know directly was injured or even there Sunday morning.

The shooting was during a youth performance of the musical “Annie”.  Those poor kids.  Those poor adults.   What a sad, sad situation.  I hope everyone can work through the trauma and the pain of this horrendous experience.
