At first I was annoyed by everything that happened today, that we were on lockdown for what turned out to be nothing.
But the more I thought about it, the more grateful I became.
When I heard the words "gunman on campus" my thoughts immediately went to the Virginia Tech massacre from April 2007. I don't know why, but they did. The terror and pain that wracked that campus is unimaginable. And I was scared we were going to live through it, too. I texted all of my friends making sure they were safe. I don't know what I'd do if someone I loved was hurt like that.
But no. We are safe. Life returns to normal tomorrow. And that is just an incredible blessing.
This is my Facebook status that I just posted. I mean every word of it.
