I remember feeling shocked, stunned, and helpless when I was lived through and experienced 9/11/2001.
I heard the news about the murder/suicide (that's what was reported in the news story) on the 10:00 news earlier in the week when it happened.
I then, again, felt shocked, stunned, and helpless when, just a few hours later at work, I learned it was someone I "knew" yet someone I had never met.
How can you shed tears over someone you didn't personally know? Because I did. The thought of all the people impacted by this: family, friends, co-workers, etc, just makes me so sad.
To each and every one of you who knew him and/or his family personally, my condolences. There are no words...
