I've been reading about the events that occurred this morning at Virginia Tech, and I've decided that Zozo will never, ever be allowed to leave the house. Ever.

I could do the whole "our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families" thing, but it just sounds so trite at this point. My thoughts and prayers are always with one person or another because there is just too much going on in the world. If cancer doesn't get you, a random shooter or suicide bomber just might. Peanut butter and bag lettuce are deadly, and even your pets aren't safe from contaminated food.

So we'll all just keep on keepin' on, like we always do. We'll shake our heads and wonder what on earth possessed someone to go on a killing rampage on a college campus. We'll hug our kids a little tighter tonight, and tomorrow we'll send our spouses off to work with more than the quick peck.

Beyond that, though, I think we should all try to be a little nicer to everyone around us, whether you like 'em or can't stand 'em. Let's all try to be a little more anti-Imus and a lot more Gandhi.

Just a thought. And a prayer.
