pretty bad when only Foxnews covers the breaking news of this event.... and I have to rely on twitter and periscope.... but I guess this is the world we live in now... ahh to be back in intel and not a SAHM like I am now... /sigh

Praying for those affected and hoping this isn't the start of something bigger. I wish I could listen to scanners, but everyone else here is asleep and my kids hid my dang headphones!!! Will be monitoring twitter for a bit and on here. If anyone gets more news, please share. As former Intel, and LEO, my thoughts are with those who will be working tirelessly to find out what happened, who did it, and why. And my hope is that the truth is told.....
