Response to Wait Wut (Original post)

Mon Jul 1, 2013, 12:28 PM

5. So sorry to hear this.

Prescott AZ is where the Bead Museum is - or used to be, at least? Is it still there?

Much love and sympathy to you - and the whole community. Smaller towns always feel this kind of thing harder - BECAUSE it's so much more likely that the victims are known to many locals. A small town is kinda like a really large family. So sorry you folks are carrying this sorrowful burden now. This is supposed to be a general week of celebration, what with the 4th of July and all. But I know that'll be the last thing you feel like doing. I'm so sorry.

Yes DU is here. DUers are here. Neat thing about this is that - regardless of the time of day or night, SOMEBODY's always up. I remember when my mom died in the middle of the evening, I wound up posting a brief note about it during the wee hours. I was AMAZED at how fast posts came, and how soon there were a hundred or more. It buoyed me up and made me feel as though many shoulders were there for me to lean on.

It's a good thing that you posted this. You will find you are surrounded by support and sympathy. It's one of the really lovely things about this place, regardless how we fight and argue and philosophically chew each other up sometimes. DU will buoy you up.





On edit - I mean, just look. When I started this post, you'd just written your OP and I thought I'd be first. In just that short span of time there were already four people in line ahead of me.
