The high country lost something precious today. Those sensless tragedies that befall big cities and high crime areas just aren’t supposed to happen here. An officer doing his job opens a door and scene. He’s done. Just like that, a light goes out. A community is forever changed. It sucks.
To compound this Nightmare, his first child is due next month. No matter your religion or beliefs, I dare you not to care. Think of your kids, your friends and family. It breaks my heart. My thoughts to the family, I wish I could do more.
I am so proud to be a member of this community right now. The outpouring of love and support I’ve seen has been amazing. I’m glad we still feel and arent so desensitized that an event like this doesn’t shake us to our core. I love my high country.
If you don’t care, take a moment and breathe, love those you love, appreciate what you have. And send thoughts, prayers, good karma, or whatever positive feeling you can to his family so they can heal.
