Nov. 5, 2009

One year ago today.

ft_hood_memorial_01.jpg

I tried to find some words, and today I'm just no good at it (not that I'm ever really good, call it worse than usual). The words wouldn't come.

The Ft. Hood - central Texas community is a close one. I'm part of it. We care about one another. This day, one year ago, the news spread quickly. It was a confusing and terrible day.

Slublog sent me this, about the victims. And I also read this story, about soldiers in the 467th Combat Stress Control Detachment who went through this, then went to Afghanistan to carry out their duty.

All we can do is remember the fallen, comfort those who lost loved ones, and secure the justice that this horrible crime demands.
