Thank you so much for your kind words Carolsays:  It’s been a hard 24 hours for a lot of us, but it helps to know our neighbours to the south are thinking of us.

Carolsays:  I agree with the PP.  It’s been a tough few days.  

I have to admit, I cried watching the coverage of the Flyers/Penguin game.  When the crowd started singing O’ Canada I lost it.  It was very touching.

Carolsays:  Thanks for your kinds words. I’m on the other side of the country, but it’s hard to watch something that this happen in your own country. I teared up watching Sergeant-at-arms Kevin Vickers walk into parliament today and all the MPs giving him a standing ovation. The day could have ended very differently without him.

I heard on the news today that Cpl. Nathan Cirillo was a single father. I really feel for his son.

Thank you for your thoughts. I too am on the other side of the country, but it was a little scary seeing it on TV, and all the people crowding around to watch the TV where I was getting my car serviced, which is where I found out. Seeing pictures of Cpl. Nathan Cirillo was heartbreaking, he had a warm and genuine smile. My thoughts are with his family and friends, especially his son.

Carolsays:  Thanks 🙂

my dad and stepmom spent all day in lockdown in their offices.  My dad’s office is less than 2 blocks from the shootings.  It was pretty terrifying.

Thankfully, as tragic as what happened is, it could have been much much worse.

My big fear now is that there’s a bigger plan.  There was a gunman caught in Halifax this morning too and there was the attack on monday in Quebec.  I hope this is all unrelated, but part of me is scared it’s not.
