Mass shooting in Thousand Oaks, CA
« on: November 08, 2018, 12:44:59 pm »
Thirteen dead, including the gunman.

Thousand Oaks is my hometown. I grew up there and lived most of my life within about 25 miles of there. Even though we've moved away, we still go there often. We have many friends who live there. This hurts. Really really hurts.

Another sad, sad day. May you feel the Lord's arms encircling you and your former community.

I'm so very sorry, Jacaré. * Sends hugs from afar *

Someone I know lives in Thousand Oaks, & I've gone to church there. It's a nice town, just a few hours south of me. I've been sick about this since I woke up to the news today, & it hasn't helped that this whole week has been filled with such terrible evil by some of God's children toward others. And it seems to make it so much worse that the victims were young people with their whole lives to look forward to.

I will keep you & your fellow townspeople in my prayers for comfort. And I pray for all of us humans, that we might seek charity & harmony instead of hate & conflict.

A bad day gets worse. At this moment there's a large brush fire burning between Thousand Oaks and Camarillo. The freeway between the two cities is closed. My 86 year old stepfather in Camarillo is preparing for possible evacuation, but he doesn't drive and his daughter in Calabasas can't get to him because of the road closures. He may have other people nearby who can help, but it's been a rough day.

N3uroTypical sez: "Somebody should have set a match to this place long ago."

Seems ironic to include this on your reply to a post about a wildfire. ;)
