In the Wake of Horror.


This is where I live. This is where I’m raising children. The children of a DART police officer who stayed up all night because they were worried about their father. That college is where I teach. It’s now the site of an active shooter crime investigation. This is my life.

Yes we’re divorced. Yes he does things I don’t like. But for the past 12 hours he’s had to experience some things I could never imagine. Staying awake with your teen children who experience a fury of emotions behind an event like this that directly affects their father is hard.

Today, this is where we are. It is a very painful place to be.
