I am not sure what to say about this. I have been asked if I am going to put up a blog about it like I did the Sandy Hook Shooting I am just so sick of school shooting and all of the war happening around the world lately. I try to keep this place more upbeat but lately, even the entertainment world is full of hate and vitriol. It can really wear on the soul of any of us who still have one.
This is from the website of the small, rural college, “UCC is a dynamic, ambitious and forward-looking institution in one of the most picturesque settings in the country, nestled between beautiful tree-studded hills and overlooking a large bend in the North Umpqua River. Natural volcanic rock and rustic, cedar shake architecture grace the 16 campus buildings located on 100-acres six miles north of Roseburg. Easy access to Interstate 5 and mild year-around climate complement the scenic beauty of the campus. The world-famous Oregon Shakespeare Festival is located 90 miles to the south and University of Oregon, with its top-ranked athletic teams and its world-class teaching and research facilities, is 60 miles to the north.”
So we can chat about today’s shooting here if you’d like or you can avoid it if you like as well. So far it sounds like 12 people dead with around 20 more people wounded, some quite seriously. The shooter made it to at least two classrooms in the science building before be he was “neutralized.” It’s unclear if the shooter was killed or not.
This is all just sad.
