Sunday afternoon

Evan at the cove
The children spent the afternoon playing at the cove while Doug stayed home to work. Word of the tragedy was just beginning to reach people picnicking today. The sadness in the city was palpable as people everywhere quietly whispered what they were hearing from the media and friends. Tragically, there was no sense of disbelief. No shock. Just sadness. Only one woman uttered a comment about this happening in Knoxville. With a shoulder shrug and a head shake she quietly said, “Shootings are a daily occurrence in _____ where I live. I guess it’s everywhere now.”
