For starters – HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY! It’s also Ash Wednesday – the start of Lent. I’ve given up pop and breads. Ooooo boy.

A tragic, horrific day in Florida as a lone gunman opened fire on students in one high school.

From CNN:

At least 17 people were killed Wednesday in a high school shooting in Parkland, Florida, the Broward County Sheriff’s office said.

The suspect, 19-year-old former student Nikolas Cruz, is in custody. Cruz was expelled for unspecified disciplinary reasons, and police are investigating his digital footprint, Sheriff Scott Israel said. So far, what they’ve found is “very, very disturbing,” he said.
“It’s a horrific, horrific day,” Israel said. “Just pray for this city. Pray for this school, the parents, the folks that lost their lives.”
Thoughts and prayers to the victims and their families tonight.
