    The aftermath of a shooting.

    This is a pretty good article that shows some of the devastating after effects of a murder that happened in a rural community. The pain and nightmares for the entire community can go on for a long, long time. "Seven months later, the gunshots still echo. " I think we often forget this as we tend to think it all ends when the shooting stops. Even experienced police can have nightmares long after an incident.

    "family members accosted in their home by a stranger in the middle of the night. The randomness and brutality horrified the community."

    Some residents applied for carry permits. "In the two months after the killings, 63 people in Waseca County walked up the concrete steps of the old brick-and-limestone courthouse to fill out applications for gun permits -- more than half of the number you'd see in a typical year." A good choice if you ask me.

    Having grow up in Kansas, I can personally vouch that the echoes of the Clutter Family murders still resonate around.

    I drive past the old Clutter place every day on the way to work.
    I was pretty young when it happened but remember hearing stories about people starting to lock their doors (something rarely done in W. Kansas back then) and hardware stores selling out of ammo and padlocks.
    I'm a child of the 60's, but I got over it.

    Time eventually heals...a lot...but not all.

    From the mayor...The mayor was not reassured by the fact that so many citizens were preparing to arm themselves. "I'm sensing a lot of tension in the rural areas," Srp said then. "I'm afraid someone is going to get shot."

    Hopefully, the next dirtbag to try something...that shouldn't be a problem!
    The last Blood Moon Tetrad for this millennium starts in April 2014 and ends in September 2015...according to NASA.

    We had the 3 rd worst mass family murder in the U.S. just a few miles down the road from me. When the smoke cleared, a total of 14 people were shot, most of them family members of the shooter.

    To this day, some of the investigators still talk about how they felt when they encountered the several shallow graves of the mans grandchildren. The trailer that this happened in burned down some time later.

    The holes in the ground are still there.

    Even experienced police can have nightmares long after an incident.
    Some things never go away.
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.
