Another campus tragedy...

and this one a little too close to home for me.

As you all are aware, yesterday, a former graduate student opened fire on an auditorium full of geology students at Northern Illinois University in DeKalb, west of Chicago, killing five and injuring countless others.

My sister-in-law, Katie, attends NIU.

Katie had just left work and was on her way to campus for class, when the shooting occurred. The footage showing the students being put into ambulances - apparently, that is where she parks for class. She is fine, but is in shock, which is to be expected. Needless to say, my family is a bit shaken by this tragic and terrible event.

Go home and hug your loved ones. You never know what can happen in this crazy world.

Love to all.
