I had a very surreal weekend. As some of you know, I went up to the University of Idaho for a reunion with a bunch of my fraternity brothers. U of I is located in Moscow, and you may have heard the news that a gunman killed four people there over the weekend. My friends and I were about two blocks away from where this happened, and about a block away from where the guy was drinking before he did what he did. It was very unsettling receiving a phone call from Mrs. Shife telling me that there was a sniper running loose in Moscow. The guy shot over 120 bullets, and I really don’t think any of us were in any immediate danger but it is disturbing knowing how close we were to this unimaginable tragedy. I am not sure if I have properly processed all my emotions but right now the world seems a little crueler. It is events like this that make you realize that nobody is guaranteed a tomorrow and that you should treat every day as a gift.
