“I was shown how fragile life was on Saturday. I saw the terror on bystanders’ faces. I saw the victims of a senseless crime. I saw lives change. I was reminded that we don’t know when or where our time on Earth will end. When or where we will breathe our last breath.”
Jessica Ghawi, victim in Today’s Colorodo theater shootings, wrote in her blog. Earlier this week reflected along these lines learning about the death of a Georgia soldier, Erica P. Alecksen, in Afghanistan with other American lives. The theater shootings are making headlines, as such tragedy should, yet the deaths of Americans overseas have become blasé. I’ll not forget either.
