Yesterday was a frightening, tragic day here in Santa Monica, California. A disturbed individual began shooting at relatives and then went on to shoot at students and others at nearby Santa Monica College, just down the street from where we live. A fire also broke out at the house with the original shooting victims. When it was all over, five people were killed, including the shooter, and many others injured.
My deepest condolences to the victims and families of yesterday's violence. So very upsetting. We are all fine and things are quieting down now, but something has to be done to stop this type of random violence. More effective gun control, combined with more mental health services available for anyone seeking it would certainly help.
