I’ve watched the WDBJ shooting video, and it is as horrific as you can imagine even without any actual on-screen gore.
The senselessness of the murders of Alison Parker and Adam Ward is what strikes you. They were doing a morning news remote, a light piece at Bridgewater Plaza when a gunman appeared, fired what sounded like eight shots. Parker screamed and dropped to the ground. Ward didn’t scream, but dropped almost as quickly, catching a few frames of the shooter as he fell.
Why anyone would shoot these two…
The reasons for murdering people doing the morning news, it’s unimaginable. That’s what makes it so horrible.
More later, but right now I have to get the boys to school, and hope they don’t ask any difficult questions about why Dad is giving them such big hugs this morning.
