...to the victims of Ft Hood. Such a senseless loss of those that put their lives on the line every day to protect us. .

I agree, just what is it coming to. It is so sad that stuff like this is getting more frequent. Our condolences to the family members.

Why do people have to do this? 

What a horrible way to go out.

It seems with today's news on the Orlando shoting spree, we will continue to see senseless violence around the country.

I heard an interesting quote from an Afganistan citizen to Mrs. Clinton last week on NPR. He said something to the effect that "you American's had your 9/11 - we have our own 9/11 practically every day!". It was a sobering reminder that while we, as a country, do suffer periodic outbreaks of violence, we certainly do not experience the constant car and suicide bombing that some others societies do.

As I said, a sobering thought. Not looking to make this political or anything. I will raise a glass to those lost to senseless violence everywhere.
