This is supposed to be my happy place, my garden… but I’m going to step outside in the rain and pollution for just a moment.

I am appalled at what has happened across the ocean. Simply appalled. Horrified. Deeply saddened. Sorrow for those who were killed and for their families. Those that committed these horrible crimes are nothing but cowardly, scum of the earth.

I am equally appalled at certain pundits who have used this tragedy to take potshots at those they politically disagree with. You are no better than the cowards who ordered, planned, and instigated these attacks.

My most heartfelt prayers go out to the victims and their loved ones. May the authorities find and deal harshly with those who planned and carried out this atrocity.
