omimouse: Digital painting of a mouse dryad (Forest Mouse)
I just got off the phone with my mom.

My family, through my dad's work, has always been close to UAH's science department, especially the biology department. Dad borrows equipment and works with folks there all the time. I think he even taught a class there one semester. These are people that I grew up meeting, since my family held BBQ parties and the like on a regular basis. We would also hold Thanksgiving dinners for those who couldn't get to their families that year, or who were from other countries and felt somewhat at a loss around the holiday.

I might not know all their names, but I know most of the faces.

So, hearing that there was a shooting at a faculty meeting, and that 3 are dead and 3 injured . . . it hits home. It hits home *hard*. It hurts even more to hear that everyone in that room had children.
