Do not let fear allow you to quit school. (Craig Scott)

Okay, first off, the quote above is not in "" marks b/c it's what he said on Today this morning and it's the gist of what he said.

I'm off to a National Library Worker's Field Trip, but I wanted to at least have something up.

So here's an interview (yes, with Pat Robertson, but it's what Google gave me right away) with Craig Scott about Columbine, and about his sister Rachel, who was killed there.

This is a link to the Today show website. I'm grateful that our President decided that it would be worth it to be there for the memorial service today. (When a President visits, there are WEEKS generally of advance teams...ask me how I know.)

My senior year of college, a student electrocuted himself while working his senior project. My grandfather died the same day, and after that, it was as if every day we heard about someone's grandparents or parents dying.

Ach. I gotta go. Be kind to one another, and call your momma!!

Where do librarians go on field trips?

On tragedy-yesterday's, today's or tomorrow's:
It is a good day to hug everyone you love. A good day to tell people what they mean to you.
We often don't think about that until tragedy strikes in some way, but remember to stop & tell some one how much they are loved.

Katy--to other libraries, of course. Two--one in McKeesport, one in Upper St. Clair. I never got to the second one, as my car inevitably gets lost in the South Hills. Um, I ended up in OAKMONT!!

Kiki--have I told you lately that I love you?? I love you!
