DL.ART THANKFUL THURSDAY WINNER Challenge #103


CLICK HERE for the DL.ART Thankful Thursday LINKY PARTY challenge ending February 28, 2013


Good Morning Friends,

Before I announce the winner of the DL.ART THANKFUL THURSDAY #103 CHALLENGE.


I have some really sad, sad, sad news to share (at least from my perspective).  As you know yesterday I made a sympathy card.  Thinking I would add it to my stash, unfortunately I will need to send it.  Two police officers in our city were shot and died yesterday. I knew both of them. One was a 28 year veteran ready to retire, leaving behind a wife a son and two daughters.  The other a female officer leaving behind her partner and two small children she had been on for the SCPD for 10 years.  If you are a person of prayer I would just ask that you keep their families in your thoughts and prayers. This is the first time since our city was incorporated in the late 1800's that a police officer has been killed in the line of duty.
       We are a small community and this will  create a huge impact. 3 schools are located in the area where the shooting occurred  they were all locked down until the suspect was found (one was where I taught for many years)  Many agencies have stepped in to help, because of protocol and many different types of investigation.  If you are interested here is a link to the article and some videos.

Not to take from this tragedy but did you hear about the restaurant fire in Kansas City, MO last wk that was caused by a construction worker hittting a gas line? This happened in the plaza area near my daughter's apt & college. Daughter was safe & ok in her apt.
