We have had several sniper attacks in the area over the past few days. They began Wed night, continued through the day Thursday, and there were more attacks Friday and Monday.

You tend to be more aware of your surroundings, scanning the horizon just to be sure nobody is acting suspicious. This latest episode at the middle school was really heinous. This SOB is targeting children now. The boy is stable, but has lost pieces of his internal organs and will forever have to deal with the fact that someone tried to kill him for no particular reason.

Brian, who just moved to this area, lives about two blocks from the school where this last shooting occurred. Welcome to Maryland, Brian, here is your body armor and trauma kit.
