Shock and despair. These are the two words that came into my mind and heart as I watched the horrific events unfold at Virginia Tech. My sympathies go out to the loved ones of the victims and to the entire VA Tech community. I haven’t been to Blacksburg, but I have been to nearby Roanoke and know what a beautiful and ‘peaceful’ part of the country that area is. It’s hard to believe that something like this has happened there.
Well, last week’s trip to Florida certainly was an experience. We started out late on a Friday afternoon — my husband, Kevin, had meetings until 6 so we couldn’t get away until then. Our destination — along with our three sons, male long-haired dachshund, and 30 foot travel trailer –was a campground north of Jacksonville. We’d camp there and then drive the rest of the way to Tampa and Clearwater, FL the next day.
