The sky right now looks about the color of the background.
This morning I read the paper about the shootings. I had met and worked with two of the victims. There were quotes from other friends about them. This is not how I want to see my friends name in print.
My deepest condolences go out to all those who knew them. to all those touched by them. to all those who are better off for knowing them.
And for me, living in Seattle, I have to remind myself that though there might be rain, the sun still burns bright.
