I hesitate to write this but there are enough of you who know where I work so that I want to reassure you that I'm okay.
My school exploded today.
Thankfully school was not in session, no kids were hurt. We did lose a colleague though- one of 17 years. We didn't know each other well but enough to say hi and chat. My younger daughter is supposed to start her senior year in three weeks in this building. Another staff member is still missing, a much beloved custodian who bonded with the kids by knowing their names and giving them Dilly bars. My daughter loved him.
I'm out of words.
