Before I post anything else, I just want to say that my prayers are for all of those affected by the shooting at Arapahoe High School, and especially for the families of those victims of such a tragedy. It’s a sad day in Colorado when another terrible thing like this happens, but we will be Colorado Strong, regardless. I just ask that those affected by this trajedy be in your thoughts (and in your prayers, if you do that, as well). Thank you.
[If you have no idea what I’m talking about, please read this. Thanks.]
Today was such a strange day. I sort of just showed up at school, and expected to do a lot. In a way, I guess I did. But it really doesn’t feel like I did. This is the last time I’ll have those classes before finals, and then I have my other set of classes on Monday (my school runs on the Block schedule). Finals begin on Tuesday. Ughh…
But anyways, I feel like I didn’t do a whole lot. I had Starbucks with a good friend of mine who got back from college, and was talking about that experience with me. So yeah, that’s cool. I also got to sign the prop closet of the old theatre that’s getting torn down soon. So, that’s cool.
I think that weirdest part was having the school decide to go into Lock-Out mode because of the events that transpired at Arapahoe High School,and it’s relative proximity to my own school. Anyways, I guess I’m grateful to still be alive. These events are tragic, but they happen, and although we can guess and wonder what might’ve caused them, and whether or not they’ll happen again (spoiler alert: they probably will), but the important thing to do is to rebuild, and to stand side by side, in solidarity with one another, for support. We need each other.
Anyways, I’m back at my parents house. And oh, so tired. I think this calls for sleep. Goodnight. Peace!…
Oh, my daily gratitude is for my friend Laurel, for having Starbucks with me, for being an awesome friend, and having incredible taste in music. Also for not being mad at my being pretty late, and still giving me a ride home when I needed one. Thank you, Laurel!
