10 Years, Really?

Did anyone else realize that it has been 10 years since Columbine? I had no idea until I saw this article pop up - and I distinctly remember watching that on the news while I was in college in a reaction not unlike the way I reacted to the September 11th attacks or when the Aggie Bonfire collapsed... ironically that 10 year anniversary happens on November 18th - which I didn't realize either! I call those moments "flash bulb" memories - you know the ones that you distinctly remember exactly where you were or what you were doing when you heard the news. Things that will be etched in your memory for the rest of your life.

I'll never forget how I felt at each of those moments, and how heart broken I felt each time.

In other random news - one of my good friends "Sugar Mommy" (also known as one of my MANY friends named Jenn) has decided to do something to help start a prayer campaign for MckMama's son, Stellan, who is having heart surgery tomorrow. The basics are that she wants everyone to wear stripes... specifically orange stripes... but click over there and read more about what she's doing.
