Shooting in Jacksonville, Florida
« on: August 26, 2018, 03:13:26 pm »
Earlier today (Sunday 26 August 2018) there was a shooting at the Jacksonville Landing, which is a complex of restaurants and shops on the north bank of the St. Johns River.

I am safe, and many of my local friends and family have indicated that they are likewise free from physical danger.

At last report, four people had been killed and at least eleven more injured.

Please hold up in your thoughts/prayers/whatever those who are not as fortunate as I and mine.

Thank you.

James Herriot (James Alfred "Alfie" Wight), when a human client asked him if animals have souls.  (I don't remember in which book the story originally appeared.)

Prayers for all those involved. Glad you and yours are safe DR.
Let God rise up, let his enemies be scattered;
    let those who hate him flee before him.
As smoke is driven away, so drive them away;
    as wax melts before the fire,
    let the wicked perish before God.
(Psalm 68 vv1-2)

Glad you and your family are safe! You will definitely be in my prayers. My former priest and his family live there now, so I'd better check on them also.  :(
