|This has been a long week in my usually quiet hometown of Twinsburg, Ohio, Forum Fans. Last Sunday, one of our police officers was gunned down on a traffic stop, shot 4 times in the head. He stopped the man simply for playing his car music too loud and on suspicion of DUI. Our officer leaves behind a beautiful young wife and a 3 month old daughter. We never knew him, but now we've learned that he was a wonderful young man with a sense not only of humor but of family who loved his job. Everywhere you go in my hometown this week, you see flags and memorials to this officer. We attended a candlelight vigil on Monday night.
I am so glad I have my animals around me this week. It seems like Ernie and Izzie have been extra loving. Ernie gets up on my lap and looks into my eyes. It's almost like he can see the sadness in there. Izzie has been extra-clownish all week and extra affectionate with mom. So has Delilah. She follows me everywhere. When they say that animals have a 6th sense about this kind of thing, they're certainly right about mine, at least! There's nothing like a warm, furry little purring body on your chest to melt a heart that,this week at least, has turned to ice.
