Keeping up with ALICE
A week ago, I found myself hiding in a second floor restroom, waiting and listening for gunshots, wondering when my time would come.
I was concealed, for the moment, behind a bathroom stall. In the next stall, Trevor Slette was concealed as well.
We were extremely quiet and motionless, but when the shooter entered any room, the search would be thorough, just as it was at Columbine High School and Sandy Hook Elementary.
The entire floor was in total lockdown mode. That was our defense against the threat. Still, we knew it was not "if," but "when."

A few thoughts on Riverfest
A wise person once told me, "Life is what you make of it."
The person was referring to how you spend your time, how you treat others and how your activities make you feel about yourself. People who do things for others are the happiest people we know.
That thought came to mind this past week as we celebrated Riverfest 2017. Everywhere I went, I saw volunteers with smiling faces.
