I just don't even know what to say.

I knew I needed to update my blog. I knew that the Official Thursday Weigh-In had been up a sufficient number of days, and that Melz World needed some new, fresh content.

I was debating what to blog about - the sudden change in weather? The wonders of the coffee I drank this morning, which enabled me to function for the first couple of hours, after my night of no sleep?

The fact that Anna Marie has figured out that when she's hungry it makes her cranky (-er)? (Just let her wait until puberty!)

And then I started seeing reports of a shooting on a college campus in Virgina.

First, it was just one shot dead and one injured.

Then, I came back from lunch, and it was worse. Oh, so much worse.

Thirty two people worse. And everytime I open my browser, my homepage tells me something worse still.

And although I have LOTS (and I mean, LOTS) of stuff, going on in my life right now -

Suddenly, I can't blog about any of that.

Suddenly, I'm speechless - or I guess "wordless" would be a better phrase for a blog.

I just don't know what to say.

Words just seem empty when such thing happen.
All we can do is hold our loved ones, pray for patience and those affected and remembet to always tell those we love that we do...every day, often. Life can change ina blink. Puts so much in perspective.

Hugs,
Sue
