Sad news from home

Who knows why people do stupid things like what happened in Omaha today. People out doing their Christmas shopping end up dying at the hand of a suicidal gunman... Thankfully my family is OK. But since names of the victims have not been released yet, we have no idea if anyone we know was involved. The mall is only about five minutes away from my parents' house. I used to work at the Panera Bread next to the store. A lot of customers at the restaurant ask where I am from, and now this is a terrible thing for them to associate with my home; this incident is making news here. And it just fuels the stereotype that Americans are gun-toting crazies. Sad.

My thoughts are with you Omaha.
