Unfortunately, our site is not dedicated to everything good that can happen to people. This tragedy serves to remind us that unexpected bad things can happen any time and anywhere, and always when you least expect it.
Our sympathy goes out to the families affected by this senseless act of violence. We also want to remind everyone that it is a good idea to always have a “what if” plan.

Be prepared and Stay safe everyone.
