Two police officers were shot and killed in the line of duty in my town here in Central Ohio. This kind of violence and tragedy really took me by surprise. Having lived in Columbus my whole life I know the kind of violence the big city can sometimes bring, but I never would have imagined it in my quaint suburb. Itís hard to imagine in any setting of course.

I'm thankful i live in a place where the last time a police officer was murdered in the line of duty was 1994 and before that 1979. I couldn't imagine the response if something like that happened now.

James, I'm glad you have the opportunity to assist with your family when they need you.  Take care.  Be comforted.

Corndog, you take care, too.

Sending out virtual hugs to oldkid, Sam and Corndog.


oldkid, thanks for answering my question. There does seem to be some glimmers of hope in your communities. I want to say take care of yourself, but I know youíll continue to do what you do, so I wish for you strength and support in your endeavors.

Mrs. oldkid laughed at that.

Thanks for the well-wishes.  And yeah, it's a time to fight.
