Yes, my brother is safe- but, one of the girls that died was his friend thru grade school and HS....and him and I did not even get to whether any of the other victims that are wounded are known to him. Sadly, my brother was thrust unready into "independant living" by death of our parents....and he is not very bonded to any of us siblings ....altho we have been working on that. My friend, I am assuming is safe. She is a professor there, but not in the field of study that seems to have been hit. ANd I did not see her name on any of the victim lists. PCs mentor, thank goodness was not lectureing there that day. YAY! My 2 nephews. 1 I am afraid to say we were anxious he possibly could have been the shooter at first (he fit a lot of the things there were saying), thank goodness we found out yesterday morning he was NOT. Altho we have not talked to him, we are confident he is fine. His brother teaches there, as a sub teacher....and one of that nephews friends was killed. Again, I do not know how many of his friends might be injured. PCs cell has alternately not been working, and she has had it off to help her get some rest to recover from her pneumonia...so we are not certain about her friends who do go there, altho we think none of her friends died. (our cable TV was also out all day yesterday) She already has a peer/classmate wake and funeral to go to Monday, a classmate died from a chronic illness this week. difficult child so far seems to be lucky enough she does not know any of the victims, but she also has a wake/funeral to attend. A friend of hers was working on his car this week, and it fell on him. :-( So, we were already kind of on overload before all this awful tragedy hit. It is simply so sad, so tragic.
