  •  I remember when America was horrified -- truly (12+ / 0-)

    horrified -- by Brenda Spencer shooting up Cleveland Elementary School in San Diego in 1979.

    We were so horrified that "I Don't Like Mondays" by Boomtown Rats wasn't played by San Diego radio stations for years.

    I dated a guy who went to Cleveland and was on the schoolground when the shooting took place. He was affected by that event well into adulthood. I'm still friendly with him. It always seemed so strange that he was one of those kids who could have been killed.

    Now, he's just one of what? Thousands of survivors of mass shootings. It's a strange horrible fraternity to belong to.

    What a country that we've created for ourselves.

    So if you get hit by a bus tonight, would you be satisfied with how you spent today, your last day on earth? Live like tomorrow is never guaranteed, because it's not. -- Me.
