There was a distraught father

On the news tonight. He was being interviewed by reporters as he held up a photo of his son, Alex. At the time, Alex was missing. A few moments ago, ABCreported that Alex was, in fact, one of the twelve slain early this morning. It was his birthday.

My heart breaks over this and all the other stories of immense loss today. The grief and healing is not going to be easy. At all. But, friends and family of the fallen, we are behind you. All of us are. Don’t ever forget that. Keep calm and carry on.

Rest in peace.
