Sadness at Christmas Time


We are profoundly saddened over the Shooting tragedy at our Clackamas Town Center Mall on Tuesday and our prayers are for the families of those who died. So many many people who were in the mall at the time are traumatized and there are also many heros who helped get people out of the mall. Both Joe and I, in separate vehicles were on streets parallel with the mall when this was happening. I have never in my life seen so many emergency vehicles converging on an area like that. At one point all I could do was stop. There was no place to even pull over because of all the traffic. The police just wove in and out and they were going really fast. The mall has been closed for 3 days now and will reopen tomorrow, but I think it will be a really long time before I can walk or shop there again
