I am so sad for all the people in Colorado and the rest of the country, after the senseless act of violence that occurred by one young man. I think it is time for us as a country to make it impossible to buy guns so easily, and 6,000 rounds of ammunition over the Internet. Watching the news coverage it is impossible to even fathom how many people have been touched by this tragedy personally, or like me watching in disbelief. I am not a fan of guns and never will be. I am not a fan of using a weapon to hurt a defenseless human or a defenseless animal. Something has to change. This could have happened anywhere and to any of our children. So sad.
I am off to Atlanta tomorrow for the Y National Swim Meet at Georgia Tech's beautiful aquatic facility. I am one of the drivers shuffling swimmers back and forth to the pool, running to get lunch and playing Mom to those whose Mom is not there. Wish me luck.
