Having lived through the last six days, I can say that those were the worst six days of my life. I thought after September 11, 2001, I would never live a week like that again, but it happened. Except this time, it was a criminal (actually two) who were hitting very close to where I live. Thankfully that is now over.
You never realize how important it is to do normal things until that is taken from you. Last week, I tried to get back to normal. Some people deal with adversity or difficult situations by locking themselves away. I try to do the opposite. I go out and I find people to do things with to get myself out there again.

It was a very well done exhibit:
