2 Minutes. (of silence) Go!

After the tragic events of last weekend, I was once again shocked at how quickly some people want things to go "back to normal." I am not that kind of person. I've felt sick all week. I usually enjoy #2minutesgo, but the idea of even doing it has been weighing on me this week. On the one hand, I don't want to do it, and it seems tacky (a word that my Grandmother used with devastating effectiveness - it seems cheap, insensitive, thoughtless). On the other, I think it is a great outlet for the crew, and I'm sorry to take that away for one week. If I might make a suggestion... Use your two minutes to think of the families of those killed. Think of the young folks that lost their lives. Think about how you can try to keep this from happening again. Maybe it's impossible. Maybe it's not. Hug someone you love. Just love, period. It's the only thing that can stop senseless hatred.

We will resume as usual next week.
