I would like to send out
my thoughts and prayers
to those who were affected
by the shootings that occurred today
in Overland Park.
About a mile from my home,
across the street from my daughter's high school
a man shot at people in the Jewish Community Center
and the Village Shalom- a retirement center.
He killed three people and injured others.
This is still sinking in for me and my family.
I drive by this very spot no less
than three times a week.
We were glued to the TV
most of the afternoon waiting for news.
Miss Beaux came home from an outing
with a friend already knowing
about the incident.
I am sad and confused
as to why these unspeakable crimes occur.
Until Next Time,
