Shootings Cause More Than Physical Pain

In regards to the latest shooting in Jamestown, it’s been said “no one was hurt” in the incident. Depends on your definition of “hurt.” I live in close proximity of where this took place and it scared me to death. At first I thought it was someone crazy setting off fireworks.

Gunshots are some loud, spread out sound effect you hear in the movies to make them more believable. But there came the police. You know, in cases where we think no one gets hurt, but I’m still reeling from it. I’m thankful it didn’t hit any kids – it happened across the street from a park.

Nobody really knows how much anxiety these tragic things bring. There is no grief counseling or anything.
